Jared Bridegan’s ex-wife has a chilling connection to the man accused of murdering a Microsoft executive

A man charged in connection with the murder of a Microsoft executive in front of his 2-year-old daughter last year is directly related to the slain father’s ex-wife and her new husband, property records show.

Records show Henry Tenon, 61, who faces charges in the murder of Jared Bridegan, lived in a house that once belonged to Mario Fernandez.

Tenon resided at 5239 Potomac Avenue in Jacksonville, Florida, which, according to documents, belongs to Fernandez.

Fernandez married Shanna Gardner-Fernandez in 2018, two years after she split from Bridegan, with whom she continued to feud over custody of their two children long after their divorce.

At the press conference, law enforcement officials pointedly noted that Tenon did not act alone in the murder and that their investigation was ongoing.

Shanna and Mario Fernandez had previously been named as suspects in Bridegan’s death, but police made no connection between them and Tenon at the press conference announcing his arrest on Wednesday.

Tenon, convicted of criminal liability, previously had burglary and battery on his record.

Gardner-Fernandez and her new husband vehemently denied involvement in Bridegan’s death, but shortly after the murder they hired prominent Jacksonville lawyer Henry Cox III.

Her marriage to Bridegan reportedly ended after she cheated on him. But, despite their legal disputes, in an interview with the Florida Times-Union, Gardner-Fernandez categorically denied any involvement in the death of her ex-husband.

She admitted that she once asked a tattoo parlor employee if he knew anyone who could silence Bridgun, but dismissed the remark as a frivolous joke.

Gardner-Fernandez, who comes from a wealthy Mormon family, recently moved from Florida to a property in Richland, Washington that her parents bought.

She reportedly broke up with Fernandez and he did not rejoin her.

Bridegan was gunned down in front of his 2-year-old daughter, Bexley, in what police finally called a planned attack.

The loving father had four children, two with Gardner-Fernandez and two with his new wife, Kirsten Bridegan.
