Detroit Mother Accused Of Helping Son Cover His Wife’s New Year’s Day Murder

January 6, 2014  |  

New Year’s Day ended in tragedy for the family of 23-year-old Milena Moore, a Detroit woman who was shot and killed by the man she called her husband, 25-year-old Brandon Glenn. According to My Fox Detroit, Milena and Brandon got into a heated argument on Jan. 1. Their altercation eventually spilled outside of their apartment, which is where Brandon allegedly shot her. Instead of calling 911, Brandon’s mother, 45-year-old Bettye Adams, who was also present at the time of the incident, placed the wounded young woman in her car and drove off. Though Bettye claims that she initially set out to drive Milena to the hospital, she says she began to fear that she would be blamed for the murder, so she drove home instead. Detroit police later discovered Milena’s body in the car, which was parked in her mother-in-law’s driveway. As to be expected, Milena’s family is outraged.

“Why would you allow your son to do something so senseless?” questioned the victim’s cousin, Rashaunda. “And how can you even be a part of something like this?”

“You’re just as guilty because a mother is supposed to teach their child something different. She never taught him anything.”

It’s unclear whether or not Milena could have been saved if Bettye had called 911.

“They actually tortured her furthermore and let her die,” Rashaunda continued.

The shooting wasn’t the first act of violence that Brandon committed agaisnt Milena. Family members say she was trapped in an abusive relationship.

“We all saw a problem. We tried, we tried,” Rashaunda expressed.

Brandon has been charged with murder and his mother is accused of aiding in the crime. Milena leaves behind a son, whom her cousin says she loved dearly.

“She was a very loving daughter. She loved her son. Good person. She had the brightest smile ever.”
