On Wednesday, two days after her husband was arrested by the FBI, Kay Jenkins filed for divorce in the Navarro County Court at Law.
Sandy Jenkins is accused of stealing $17 million from his former employer, the Collin Street Bakery, where he worked from 1997 until June 21 of this year, when he was fired.
According to the divorce petition, she stopped living with him on July 28, which would have been five weeks after Jenkins was fired, and four days after their Corsicana home was searched by the FBI.
Kay Jenkins is asking the court to grant her the bulk of their estate because, among other things, he committed “actual fraud.”
“Respondent has committed fraud on the community estate,” the petition states, asking that the court reestablish their shared assets to their previous value before Sandy committed fraud, and that the court split the value fairly between them.
She also asks that the court declare her property as her’s alone. Currently, the FBI has frozen all of their shared assets, including bank accounts.
We’ll post more on this story later today and in the Friday print edition of the Daily Sun.
