Man Shoots The Mother Of His Kids In Front Of Them While Visiting Son For His Birthday
What is the world coming to?
According to the Daily Mail, a Virginia man named Travis Baker, 34, did the unthinkable this past Sunday when he went to the home his ex-girlfriend was staying at to visit their toddler son on the boy’s birthday. He wound up killing her in front of the boy.
Baker, who has two children with the late Wendy Billups, 33, had in the past been very abusive to her. So much so that Billups moved out just last week into the home where the crime happened so that she could get away from him. But he found out where she moved to, and on the birthday of their young son, who is a toddler, he arrived at the home to see him and their other child. When Billups turned him away and asked him to leave, Baker claims it caused him to “snap.” He shot her twice in the head while their children were watching in the house.
But her cousin Percy Lockley, doesn’t believe that’s why he just snapped. He feels that Baker has been angry ever since Billups decided to end their relationship.
“When she tried to get out of the relationship, he didn’t want to get out. He took matters into his own hands and killed her.”
Barker has since been charged with first degree murder along with some weapons charges that include “use or display in a threatening manner a firearm while committing or attempting to commit murder.” Billups and Barker’s two children who were present during the murder have been put in protective custody.
