Alleged Polygamist And His Three Wives Charged In Plot To Kill Teen

He made his wives call him "Lord."

A Utah man accused of polygamy plotted with his three wives to murder a 14-year-old girl and her family after the teen accused him of sexual abuse, People reported.

Kain Blackwing, already imprisoned for the sexual abuse, now faces charges of soliciting aggravated murder. He has yet to enter a plea on the new accusations.

Court documents claim that in 2014, as Blackwing was on trial for molesting the teen, he and his purported wives believed that the charges against him would be dropped if they killed the girl. It’s unclear if the women are legally his wives, but Blackwing referred to them as his wives and told them to consider him a god and call him “Lord.”

Two of his wives—Raven Blackwing and Tylynn Southwick—broke into the girl’s home dressed like ninjas and planned to suffocate her, a local CBS station reported. The pair carried an astonishing array of weapons into the home: stun gun, knives, a tourniquet, saran wrap, syringes, synthetic heroin, and formaldehyde. 

Luckily, the girl’s mother’s boyfriend managed to halt the planned attack and police arrested them. They were convicted of burglary, assault, and intimidation charges in 2015. 

Theresa Baker, Blackwing’s third wife, was charged for the plot last week. She and her husband were allegedly planners of the attack, using video game code words when they spoke over the phone in reference to the crime.
