Principal Paid Friend $2,500 To Kill His Pregnant Girlfriend
A Missouri middle school principal has been arrested for allegedly paying off a childhood friend to murder his seven months pregnant girlfriend. According to NY Daily News, Cornelius Green hired Philip J. Cutler to kill Jocelyn Peters, along with their unborn child.
Court documents after the indictment show Green met up with Cutler at the bus station to pick him up. Green then left Cutler with his car keys as well as the keys to his pregnant girlfriend’s apartment. The disgraced educator left town to establish a credible alibi but the two men remained in contact over the course of the murder plot.
Green returned a few days and found his girlfriend dead in her apartment, police pulled him in for questioning. Green was busted by cops after he asked to make a phone call to his daughter but called his ex-wife instead, asking her to move his car from Peters’ apartment. Green was completely unaware that police was listening to the phone call!
Cutler was eventually arrested back in his Oklahoma hometown on June 9 and is now being held in St. Louis in lieu of $1 million bail. Green is being held on $3 million cash bail.
Green is also facing felony counts for allegedly stealing $2,700 from students at the performing arts middle school he used to be the principal of. The theft occurred roughly three weeks before Peters’ death and investigators are looking into whether it could have had something to do with the murder.
Lock this scumbag up for life!!!
