“They accused you [Tenon] with conspiracy. That means there are more people,” the widow told Fox News.
“That was orchestrated, that was planned and that was specific to Jared.”
Investigators announced the arrest of Tenon, 61, in connection with the murder of Jared, 33, who was gunned down in “cold blood” on February 16, 2022.
Tenon was charged with second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, child molestation and accessory to a felony.
Investigators did not reveal a motive for the killing, but suspect Tenon “did not act alone,” prosecutor Melissa Nelson said.
Jared’s ex-wife and her second husband, Mario Fernandez, remain suspects in the case, according to a law enforcement source cited by Fox News.
Jared’s brother Adam, who attended the press conference announcing the arrest with Kristen, said the family is not done seeking justice.
“We will continue to fight until every single person involved, including those who tried to cover it up, is brought to justice,” Adam told Fox News. “We will not give up”
Authorities described the killing as a “planned, targeted ambush and murder.”
During Wednesday’s news conference, Florida officials declared the case active and ongoing.
Jared, a father of four, was found shot dead on a Florida street after dropping off his twins at his ex-wife’s Jacksonville Beach home.
The case has long left investigators perplexed after it was revealed the Microsoft executive pulled over when he saw a tire in the middle of a secluded road.
After Jared stopped his car to remove the tire from the road, an unidentified gunman – whom police believe to be Tenon – opened fire, killing the father in cold blood.
Jared’s then two-year-old daughter, Bexley, was in the vehicle and watched from the back seat.
The traumatized toddler sat in the car next to her father’s body for three minutes before someone came by and noticed.
Investigators suspect that the father was lured out of his car by his killer.
At the time, his wife Kirsten was home with their then seven-month-old daughter London.
Jared and his ex-wife divorced in 2016, but the relationship has been in turmoil over finances and custody of their twins.
According to Fox News, 35-year-old Gardner-Fernandez has now moved 2,800 miles from Florida to West Richland, Washington.
