Daniel Kadima's ex-wife wrote an affidavit Wednesday for a motion of contempt stating that Kadima violated the terms of their divorce and that police "say he is the person they believe beat his mother to death." She also detailed Kadima's history of mental illness and stated that he was parked in her driveway waiting for her to return home Wednesday.
Jail records show Daniel Kadima had been arrested four previous times in Gregg County, largely on criminal trespass and theft of stolen property charges. The death of Hauwa Esther Kadima marks the eighth Longview homicide of 2015.
Ashley Dendy, 26, of Longview was acquainted with the woman who lived in the apartment but did not know her name. “She was sweet, nice, polite,” Dendy said. “I know she believed in God. She’d always say ‘God bless you’ or ‘Have a blessed day,’ things like that.”
Dendy said she was not surprised when police came to the woman’s apartment. “She had trouble with her son,” Dendy said. “She told us personally he had a mental illness and she was trying to get him home to Nigeria to get help.”
