Jennifer Faith Arrested
In January, police arrested Darrin Lopez, 48, in the deadly shooting of James Faith, while he was walking his dog with his wife on the morning of Oct. 9, 2020. They said Lopez was once Faith’s wife, Jennifer’s, boyfriend, and drove from Tennessee to Texas to kill James Faith.
On Jan. 11, the ATF Special Response Team in Tennessee arrested Lopez for murder. Officers took him to the local Sheriff’s office where he will be held until his extradition back to Dallas. According to the arrest affidavit, Lopez was Jennifer Faith’s boyfriend in high school and college.
Dallas Police said their investigation revealed Faith’s wife, Jennifer, and Lopez exchanged more than 14,000 calls and texts between Sept. 30 and Oct. 30 last year.
Detectives found text messages where Jennifer Faith described her relationship with Lopez as “a full-blown emotional affair” and that Lopez had a “five-year plan on how they would be together.”
Jennifer Faith arrest
A law enforcement source tells FOX 4 Jennifer is being charged with federal obstruction of justice in relation to the murder of her husband. We’re still awaiting information from the U.S. attorney about the evidence they collected that led to that charge.
During an interview for FOX 4’s Trackdown shortly after his murder, Jennifer made a plea to help find her husband’s killer.
“It’s been horrible, devastating. I teeter between being heartbroken and completely devastated. Every day has been awful,” she said.
Once portraying herself to be a grieving widow looking for her husband’s killer, Jennifer was now booked into the Dallas County Jail Wednesday afternoon.

Earlier in January, Jennifer’s ex-boyfriend, Darrin Lopez, was arrested in Tennessee. Investigators say he drove to Dallas just to kill James.
According to court documents, Jennifer originally told police she was unable to identify the shooter because he was wearing a hood and a facemask. She also said the suspect attacked her, duct-taped her hands, and hit her while she was on the ground.
And she made several pleas to the public to help find the killer of her husband of 15 years. But federal investigators said Jennifer was having a “full-blown emotional affair” with her ex, Darrin Lopez.
She and Lopez reportedly exchanged more than 14,000 calls and texts in one month and had a five-year plan for how they could be together.
On the day of the murder, they suddenly stopped communicating and weren’t in contact again until nine hours after it happened. Federal investigators said Lopez drove from his home in Tennessee to Texas and laid in wait, shooting James seven times the morning of Oct. 9.
Investigators tracked him back down to Tennessee, and in January, he was arrested and charged with murder and a federal weapons charge.
