That’s fawked up
Mother Murdered By Pregnant Teenage Daughter And Her Boyfriend
A “fragile” relationship between DeCarol DeLoney-Cain and her 17-year-old daughter Alyssa Barrett deteriorated even more when the teen became pregnant earlier this summer, police learned after finding the woman’s decomposed body in the trunk of her car July 7.
Barrett, who has been arrested and charged with murder and robbery resulting in bodily injury in her mother’s death, had “frequently talked of robbing and/or killing her mother,” and spoke about stabbing her mother and hiding her body while she was in foster care, court records filed Wednesday state.
Barrett’s boyfriend, Demarius McGriggs, 18, of Merrillville, was charged earlier this month. McGriggs admitted to Gary police that he killed DeLoney-Cain after an argument because she wanted her daughter to abort his baby, the probable cause affidavit states. DeLoney-Cain suffered multiple stab wounds and a head injury and was found wrapped in plastic garbage bags with a pillow case over her head in the trunk of her car.
McGriggs told investigators he put the pillow case over her head so he wouldn’t have to look at her, court records state.
That how you do ya MAMA?!?!
In a series of separate interviews, both Barrett and McGriggs provided conflicting details about their roles in the slaying until detectives presented them with facts gleaned from others interviewed and evidence. Two other friends of the couple have been implicated in the robbing DeLoney-Cain and disposing of her body, the affidavit states.
DeLoney-Cain, 54, of Crown Point, a United Airlines flight attendant, had been stabbed, duct-taped and left in the trunk of her Toyota for days while her daughter claimed she had flown to China.
Barrett and McGriggs are both being held without bail. They might as well get used to their new home.
