Chicago Man Kills Wife For Insurance Money After Realizing He’s Gay
This is double indemnity — with a twist.
A Chicago man is currently on trial for allegedly murdering his wife for insurance money after realizing he was no longer in love with her because he was gay.
Prosecutors said that Darron Brewer, 26, plotted to kill wife Kenyatae Coller-Brewer for the insurance payout.
DNAInfo reports that Coller-Brewer, 22, worked for the U.S. National Guard and had a life insurance policy through the reserve military force.
Prosecutors allege that Brewer and his younger brother, Dujuan Powe, plotted to kill Coller-Brewer before the couple’s marriage was over, giving the former husband a financial nest egg.
The couple had two children together.
Cook County Assistant State Attorney Jeff Allen said in court Monday that the brothers hatched a plan in October 2009 for Brewer to strangle her at her home in Logan Square.
But, Allen said, the alleged conspirer couldn’t go through with it: “Instead of killing her, (he) had sex with her, consensual sex.”
The court heard that Brewer faked a carjacking, forcing his wife into the trunk of their car, then shooting her on Oct. 25, 2009.
Both brothers are charged in her murder, and their trial is expected to last for several more days, the website reports.
