Investigators say Adam Garibay tied up his wife in their Corpus Christi home yesterday and forced her to reveal the name and address of the man she was involved with. Authorities say Garibay then drove about 160 miles northwest to a home near Hondo, where he shot Keith Martin. He then led police on an 18-mile chase.
