Pregnant woman stabs boyfriend to death after getting nothing on a shopping trip
A pregnant woman is accused of stabbing and killing her boyfriend for not buying her gifts during a trip to a shopping mall.
Miata Phelan, 24, has been charged with first-degree murder for the April 30 death of her boyfriend, 28-year-old Larry Martin, according to a report by The Chicago Tribune. Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil set bail at $1 million.
Phelan stood over a stabbed Martin and yelled ‘This is what you get for messing with me. I hope you die, m***********’ as Martin’s 8-year-old son Lavelle watched, Assistant State’s Attorney Glen Runk reportedly said.
Prior to the stabbing, Phelan, Martin, Lavelle and Martin’s 25-year-old cousin went to a shopping mall, Runk said. She reportedly accused Martin of being ‘selfish’ for buying items for his cousin and son but not her.
