KCSO takes DNA, fingerprints from Leslie Chance, principal previously accused of husband's murder

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The defense attorney for the elementary school principal who is suspected by the Kern County Sheriff's Office of shooting and killing her husband said his client is cooperating fully in the sheriff's investigation.

The KCSO collected additional evidence from Leslie Chance Wednesday, including finger and palm prints and a DNA swab.

Leslie Chance was arrested and accused of shooting her husband, Todd Chance, before the District Attorney later told the KCSO they did not have enough evidence against her and she was released.

Leslie Chance's lawyer, Kyle Humphery, said it is an unfortunate run of events.

Humphery said Leslie Chance will turn herself in and continue to cooperate with the investigation, should the KCSO determine later they have enough evidence to arrest her again.
