A court date has been set for the wife of a man who was fatally shot by a Leavenworth police officer.

Heather Garcia, 41, is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 16.

Garcia is charged in Leavenworth County District Court with a misdemeanor count of interfering with law enforcement for allegedly tampering with evidence.

She 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.

Heather Garcia has been released on bond.

An attorney appeared on her behalf Friday in Leavenworth County District Court, and the judge scheduled the next court date for August.
