Three suburban St. Louis residents are being charged with second-degree murder, assault, and armed criminal action after a wife’s deranged plot against her estranged husband went wildly amiss.
The “mastermind,” 25-year-old Jasmine Kimbrough, thought it would be a good idea to send three thugs to her husband’s house Sunday. The plan was for the three yoots (Gregory Bell, 18, Davion Rainey, 18, and Bell’s 16-year-old brother, Noah Bell) to burglarize the place and attack the husband if he was home.
The three, who were armed with at least one gun, got as far as the back yard before they were confronted by Kimbrough’s husband, who shot at them. All three ran off.
The husband called the police, who arrived at his home around 1:30 in the afternoon. The officers canvassed the area and eventually found Noah Bell nearly dead of a gunshot wound along the River Des Peres. He died shortly thereafter. Kimbrough and the two 18-year-olds were subsequently arrested.
Police say all three suspects have confessed.
