Former TV Bailiff Killed Wife
A Texas sheriff’s deputy who spent four years portraying a bailiff on a television courtroom drama has been charged with murder after allegedly shooting his wife in their home.
For his work as the bailiff on the 2012-2016 courtroom drama Justice For All with Judge Cristina Perez, Renard L. Spivey is most known to audiences. When he wasn’t on television, he was a deputy with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Houston.
However, Spivey, 63, was arrested on Monday and booked into the Harris County Jail on a murder suspicion.

Spivey was married to a woman named Patricia. Patricia was a student from Jack Yates High School.
Patricia was described as a vivacious and gregarious person by her friends and family. She also valued maintaining her physical fitness.
According to court records, Renard and Patricia quarreled on Sunday at their Briscoe Street home about their private lives. After a disagreement with his wife over a gun, Renard accidentally shot her and called 911 about three in the morning.
How Did Former TV Bailiff Kill His Wife?
According to Fox News, Spivey had a gunshot wound to the leg, said the police, when authorities arrived at the scene of a domestic disturbance report. Authorities said that after conducting additional investigation, they discovered the body of his wife, 52-year-old Patricia Ann Marshall Spivey, who had been shot.
Spivey reportedly told police that he and Patricia were fighting over his alleged steroid use, according to the charging documents that were read in court on Monday. The two quarreled over a gun in the bedroom closet, said Spivey. There were at least three shots fired, striking Patricia twice and Renard once.
After posting a $50,000 bond, a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy who had previously played a bailiff on a courtroom drama was freed from custody on Wednesday.
On Monday night, Renard Spivey, 63, was taken into custody on a murder accusation. He is suspected of shooting and killing his 52-year-old wife Patricia Ann Marshall Spivey on Sunday at their house in southeast Houston.
According to KHOU-TV, Renard allegedly told police during an interview that was recorded on a body camera worn by an officer, “We were arguing and tussling with the gun.” All day long, we had been arguing.
When Was Spivey Arrested?
On Monday, July 29, 2019, he was arrested for the murder of his wife, Patricia Ann Marshall Spivey.
Renard claimed that throughout the day, he and Patricia battled over their lack of closeness. They allegedly quarreled over a gun that went off during their fight, killing Patricia.
Patricia was discovered dead in the closet of the master bedroom when the police arrived. Near Patricia’s body, authorities found her cell phone and cartridges. On top of a laundry basket, there was also a 9-mm handgun.
She sustained two gunshot wounds, one to her arm and one to her heart, as well as wrist contusions.
Renard had a gunshot wound to his leg, so he was brought to a nearby hospital. He said that during their fight, Patricia shot him in the leg.
Where Is Spivey Now?
Spivey was accused of murder, and because of his background in law enforcement, the government has asked for a large bond sum. But the judge increased his bail to more than $800,000.
Authorities also asked for a large bond, arguing that Renard’s record as a peace officer and his familiarity with guns made him a flight risk and a serious threat to the neighborhood.
Renard Spivey’s bond was set by the judge at $50,000 after the prosecution first asked for a bond of more than $100,000.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy accused of killing his wife was released from custody. But following that judgment, there was no further information available about Renard Spivey’s verdict or any indication of what he is doing or where he is at the time now.
