McKinney newlywed arrested, accused of killing his wife

- A man turned himself in Sunday to the Collin County Sheriff’s Office and admitted to shooting and killing his newlywed wife.

Court documents show 21-year-old Jordan Sullivan shot and killed his wife Kayley Winburn shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday at their rural Collin County home outside McKinney. Court records also show a shot gun and rifle were found on the bed near where 21-year-old Kayley was found shot to death.

Deputies were dispatched to the young couple's home on County Road 329 after Sullivan called 911 to report that he had shot his wife and was going to turn himself in.

Investigators said while he did admit to the murder and turn himself in he stopped short of providing a motive.

"Anytime there's a loss of life it's horrible, the sheriffs and the staff take this very serious and we want to make sure that justice is done. However, we have great empathy and sympathy for the families involved in this situation,” said Capt. Jim Moody, Collin County Sheriff's Office.

Sullivan and his wife were married just four months ago. Relatives showed up at the home, but did not want to speak on camera. They did say she was a wonderful young woman who was in love with her husband and was a fun loving person who loved animals and caring for them. Winburn’s family also said she loved hunting, fishing, four wheeling and the outdoors.

Neighbors who live nearby did not want to share their names, but recalled hearing unusual noises.

“He thought it was a door slam, I thought it was a gunshot. That's what I thought, that's what happened over there, and I told my husband, I said something happened over there, and I think somebody killed somebody or somebody committed suicide or something," the neighbor said.

The neighbors said they’re shocked and saddened to learn of the murder.

“That is so sad because they were so young, and she just seemed to be so sweet when I talked to her. That's sad. I hate to hear that. But if he's in jail, that's probably going to be the best thing for this neighborhood," the neighbor said.
