WACO (April 17, 2013)—David Evans, 48, who was charged in connection with a burglary and shooting earlier this week, is no longer employed as superintendent of Waco’s historic Oakwood Cemetery, officials confirmed Wednesday afternoon.

Evans was charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony after an incident Sunday night in Belton in which a woman identified as his wife was shot in the shoulder.

Vicki Evans is recovering and is expected to return to work soon, authorities said Wednesday.

After his arrest, Evans was jailed in lieu of $10,000 bond, but did not appear on the Bell County Jail log on Wednesday.

Belton police said Evans claimed to be an undercover narcotics officer with the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office.

But when officers called to verify the claim, they were told he’s not a deputy, McLennan County Chief Deputy Matt Cawthon said.

Evans once served as a reserve deputy, but is no longer associated with the sheriff’s office.

Evans had served as Oakwood’s superintendent since 2007, taking over from his father who oversaw the cemetery for 39 years.
