The wife of a Leavenworth man who was fatally shot by police has been charged with a misdemeanor, a prosecution official said.

Heather Garcia, 41, was arrested Tuesday. That was the same night her husband, Antonio Garcia Jr., was shot by a police officer in Leavenworth.

The shooting is being investigated by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. The police officer, whose name has not been released, has been placed on paid administrative leave.

County Attorney Todd Thompson said Heather Garcia was charged Thursday with interfering with law enforcement for allegedly tampering with evidence.
