Some people just can’t break up and keep it moving.
According to Mail Online
A stripper is accused of luring her fiance to an apartment where her then-17-year-old son and his friend tried to kill him by strangling him with an extension cord and bashing him over the head with a fry pan.
Vicky Miller, 44, is on trial for the November 2011 attempted murder of Paul Key, 54, whom she met while dancing topless at Lipstick Cabaret in Dallas and agreed to marry after just 30 minutes.
Prosecutors on Monday said Key drained his 401k and took out a mortgage on his home so he could lavish Miller, who faces unrelated charges of aggravated sexual assault of a 13-year-old boy, with gifts including a car each for her and her son.
‘I agreed to support her financially,’ Key testified, adding that he spent cash he’d saved over 30 years on the woman. ‘I had someone I enjoyed talking with. I thought I could buy loyalty with money.’
He said they regularly met up for breakfast at IHOP following their night shifts and he paid her $2,000 a month to support her so she would quit her job at Lipstick Cabaret.
But the affair, which Key claimed on Tuesday was non-sexual, turned sour after Miller kept putting off the wedding and after three and a half years Key, an AT&T employee, began to think he was being used, Dallasnews.com reported.
He said he decided to break up with her and move forward with his life.
Key, who had been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic at age 35, said on Tuesday he had stopped taking his medication about two months before the breakup because he was strapped for cash.
But he said that had no impact on his ability to remember the alleged attempted murder, which he claimed may have been prompted by the inaccurate belief that Miller would receive his life insurance payout.
Damn, he lavished her with gifts and still almost got his wig pushed back. Didn’t help that he was a nutcase too.
