The man charged with murdering Microsoft executive Jared Bridegan in front of his 2-year old daughter was a regular contractor for his ex-wife’s new hubby, according to the accused killer’s roommate.
Henry Tenon — accused by cops of gunning down the 33-year-old father-of-four — routinely performed work at several rental properties owned by Mario Fernandez, the former roommate told The Post.
Fernandez is now married to Shanna Gardner-Fernandez who had been locked in a bitter divorce and custody dispute with Bridegan since 2016.
Tenon’s former roommate also described Tenon, 61 — a convicted felon — as a quiet and hardworking man who often helped out his ailing father who lived next door before he recently passed away.
“Henry seemed like a quiet guy, up early every morning for work, just doing his thing,” the roommate said.
“I know he did little jobs for Mario here and there when he asked him to.”
He recalled four separate police visits to their Jacksonville home after Tenon was arrested on unrelated charges last August.
“They kicked the door down one time,” he said. “They turned the whole place over. They were looking for a gun, his truck, they took all of his clothes.”
The roommate said he was taken in for questioning and grilled for four hours about any information he had on Tenon’s role in Bridegan’s death.
“I just sat there and told them I have no idea about any of it,” he said. “Henry would just crash on the couch when he needed a place to stay. That’s all I knew. This has all just been crazy.”
The roommate said Tenon was unusually strong for his age, and had a local girlfriend who he would dutifully take to a methadone clinic each morning before heading off to work.
Tenon has been behind bars since August after cops found a shotgun in his trunk during a traffic stop.
Tenon was a one-time tenant at a Jacksonville property formerly owned by Fernandez and police have stressed he was part of a larger conspiracy to murder doting dad Bridegan.
Prosecutors charged him with Bridegan’s murder Wednesday, and said they are still on the hunt for his conspirators. Fernandez and Gardner-Fernandez remain suspects in the case, according to law enforcement sources.
Bridegan, who had two young children with his new wife Kirsten Bridegan, was driving home from dropping off the kids he shared with his ex when he came upon a tire in the middle of the road.
He was immediately shot dead after exiting his vehicle to remove the obstacle, police said.
HIs 2-year-old, Bexley, sat in a carseat for three minutes after witnessing her father’s execution until a passerby discovered the disturbing scene and called police.
Gardner-Fernandez has since moved with her two kids to Richland, Washington, according to Fox News. Her husband did not join her in making the cross country move.
