Hoodbooger: Noun, Being a pregnant chick named Miata while stabbing your boyfriend to death
A judge set bail today at $1 million for a pregnant woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend at their Southwest Side home after they fought because the man didn’t’ buy anything for her at a shopping mall.
Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil set the bail for Miata Phelan, 24, of the 6800 block of South Talman Avenue, who is charged with first-degree murder.
The visibly pregnant Phelan, who appeared in court today wearing pink sweat pants with black stripes, a pink top, and black leather jacket, allegedly plunged a knife into Larry Martin’s left flank on April 30, prosecutors said.
Martin, 28, is the father of her unborn child and they lived together.
How did it all pop off? Well…
Before the stabbing happened, Phelan, Martin, Martin’s 8-year-old son and 25-year-old cousin, a man, went shopping at a shopping mall. On the way home, Phelan accused Martin of being selfish because he bought things for his cousin and son but not for her, Asst. State’s Attorney Glen Runk said.
Court records show Phelan turned 24 on May 1.
Runk said Phelan struck Martin while he was driving, almost causing an accident, and after Phelan drove to Martin’s mother’s home to drop off shoes for Martin’s brother, she kicked and scratched Martin before driving away in his car, leaving Martin, his 8-year-old and Martin’s cousin outside.
The three walked to the couple’s nearby apartment and when Phelan arrived about the same time, she and Martin began arguing again and she locked the three outside, Runk said.
Martin banged on the door until she opened it and once inside, Phelan stabbed Martin in his side with a knife, Runk said.
According to witeness report, Phelan said:
“This is what you get for messing with me,’’ Runk said, quoting Phelan. “I hope you die, mother f—–,”
Naturally, this type of thing will spark outrage toward the the murderous soon-to-be-mom, but she just threw away her life for nothing.
Asst. Public Defender Lisa Brean said Phelan is a life-long resident of Chicago, who is eight classes away from receiving a bachelor’s degree in public relations from Columbia College in Chicago. Brean said she is pregnant with the victim’s child and surrendered herself to police.
Miata will likely spend the rest of her life in prison (if she’s not given the death penalty), where she’ll deliver her child. SMFH.
