ST PAUL, Minn (WSAU-Wheeler News) Prosecutors now say that blank divorce papers were found in a car abandoned by Wausau area native Kira Steger Trevino, around the time she was allegedly murdered by her husband in Minnesota.
An amended criminal complaint was filed yesterday. It said Kira and Jeffrey Trevino gave notice to move out of their rented home in Saint Paul on April first, and Kira was looking for an apartment only for herself.
The new complaint also said Kira’s abandoned car had the address of a suburban Twin Cities man she was seeing romantically. She had been missing since February 21st before her decomposed body was found last Wednesday in the Mississippi River in downtown Saint Paul.
Her husband was scheduled to go on trial May 28th on two counts of second degree murder, but both sides have asked that the trial be delayed. Jeffrey Trevino’s latest court hearing is today.
The amended complaint contains a host of new evidence. Prosecutors said Jeffrey Trevino acted suspiciously after he reported his wife’s disappearance to police. Officers said Trevino asked what he was supposed to do with his wife’s belongings – and police thought he did not expect Kira to return, since she had only been missing for 48 hours at that point.
