First time ex-wife speaks about Villarreal death

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash.--  For the first time the ex-wife of a man shot and killed by Kennewick Police last month is talking about her former husband.

Nancy Mason divorced from Christopher Villarreal years ago, but says the father of her two children still played an active role in their life.

She says he started coaching his son's baseball team this summer and also helped out taking his daughter to ballet.

For the first time today Mason shared with us her children are still greiving after losing their father.

Mason is acting for her children and has hired an attorney to look into a possible civil case against the city of Kennewick.

In the meantime, the Department of Justice is conducting their own investigation into the Sept. 14 shooting death of Villarreal by Kennewick Police.
