He drove nine hours to Milwaukee where he was arrested.
FOX13’s Tony Atkins spoke with the wife’s father, who was heartbroken by the loss of his daughter.
"That was my baby," said Calvin Smith, Natasha's father. "Everywhere she was, I was."
Smith said he knew Natasha and Markese argued, but never thought it'd end in death.
"Markese, I believed in you," Smith said. "I thought you were my son-in-law, but you had the nerve to take my daughter's life?"
Natasha was one of 10 of Smith's children. They're now down to seven after two others were killed in various incidents.
Natasha looked after two of her nephews. They are sons of her late sister. Both nephews witnessed the shooting.
