Dallas, TX – One of our awesome fans sent this little tidbit our way via email. Dwayne Moten, 20, wasn’t pleased that his ex-girlfriend, slash baby momma, was hooked up with someone new and he wanted custody of his 3-year-old son, Dwayne Jr., so he came up with a brilliant plan. He would hire a friend to shoot him a little bit and would place the blame on the baby momma’s new boyfriend! He’d spend a couple hours in the ER, baby momma’s boyfriend would go to jail, and he’d have his kid. Splendid! What could possibly go wrong? Moten and his chosen friend, 20-year-old Jacob Wheeler, put the plan into motion Saturday afternoon. Wheeler played his part, but what was supposed to be a mere flesh wound turned into a fatal shot. “He was actually planning on shooting him in the thigh and shoulder,” Dallas police homicide Sgt. Bruce McDonald said. “I don’t know if [Moten] flinched and turned sideways a little more. The bullet entered the chest cavity and was fatal.” Oopsie!!
Moten soon realized that the injury was a bit more serious than he had planned and was on the phone with 911. Funny thing, though, in the midst of all the pain and blood and dying and shit, he forgot to implicate the baby momma’s boyfriend. Fail! Now he’s dead and his friend is facing a murder charge. I don’t know how the police added two and two and came up with murder, but Wheeler was arrested on an unrelated aggravated robbery charge Sunday morning and slapped with a murder charge as well. He’s being held on $750,000 bail. Police say both Moten and Wheeler have extensive criminal histories.
