Warrant: Phone records place murdered attorneys ex-husband near her home on day of death CHRIS MICTHELL, 50, 01/23/06 SAN ANTONIO Warrant: Phone records place murdered attorneys ex-husband near her home on day of death As reported by the San Antonio Express-News February 3, 2006 By James Munoz Investigators from another state are now looking into the capital murder of an attorney killed last Monday. Chris Mitchell was found strangled and drowned in her bathtub. KENS 5 has obtained a search warrant claiming Mitchell's ex-husband was near her home the day she was killed. Mitchell was a mother of four, and ran a successful law practice. Five years ago, she divorced Victor Antolik. Court records show years of litigation over their three kids, child support and money hundreds of thousands of dollars. The documents also said Mitchell accused Antolik of hiding money in multiple accounts. The search warrant was carried out last Wednesday, Jan. 25 at Antolik's home near Nashville, Tenn., and it confirms the couple was in litigation over a large amount of money. The warrant also said two days after Mitchell's murder, Antolik was found with scratches on his face, neck, arms and chest, injuries he said were from his brother. Police took saliva and hair samples from Antolik, according to the warrant. Officials also said in the warrant that phone records place Antolik near Mitchell's home the day she was killed. Mitchell was found by her children the afternoon of Jan. 23. Police waited 16 hours before calling the incident capital murder. The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office released the autopsy results four days after the homicide. Authorities were unable to comment on the case, nor have they named Antolik as a suspect. Antolik is expected in civil court next Thursday over a family matter involving custody of the children and a temporary restraining order.
