Two More People Indicted In Kidnapping And Murder Of Real Estate Agent
Elsa Segura and Lyndon Wiggins now join Cedric Berry and Berry Davis as co-defendants in the murder of Monique Baugh and the attempted murder of her boyfriend Jon Mitchell-Momoh.
Two additional people have been indicted for the kidnapping and murder of a Minnesota real estate agent who was attacked after being lured to a fake house showing.
Elsa Segura, 29, of Fridley, and Lyndon Wiggins, 36, were indicted Thursday by a Hennepin County Grand Jury on four counts of aiding and abetting the crimes of first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, kidnapping and first-degree felony murder while committing kidnapping.
Wiggins’ attorney, Joseph Friedberg, declined to comment Friday on the indictment. Segura’s attorney, Amanda Montgomery, did not immediately return a message for comment.
Two other co-defendants, Cedric Berry, of Minneapolis, and Berry Davis, of Brooklyn Park, were indicted in February 2020 by a Hennepin County Grand Jury on the same charges.
Prosecutors said Monique Baugh, 28, was lured to a phony home showing in the Minneapolis suburb of Maple Grove, kidnapped and found shot to death in a Minneapolis alley on New Year’s Eve.
Police believe that Mitchell-Momoh was the intended victim in a dispute over a record deal with a fellow rapper. Before his girlfriend was shot, he was shot at a separate location, a house, where two young children were present.
Mitchell-Momoh told detectives he believed that he was targeted either because he had been flaunting “a lot of money” on his social media accounts or that people suspected him of cooperating with police, according to court filings.
“I cannot begin to describe how vicious the behavior was in this case,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said in a statement last year. “We have charged Mr. Berry with setting a trap for Ms. Baugh, assassinating her at close range, and shooting at her boyfriend while in the same house with two small children.”
A jury trial for Berry and Davis is scheduled to begin Monday.
Berry has an extensive rap sheet stretching back 20 years. He was convicted of manslaughter in 2002 and has a slew of past narcotics convictions.
Baugh, known for flipping homes in Minneapolis’ suburbs, is remembered as being a loving mom and a hardworking realtor.
“Our entire team is devastated by Monique’s death,” Kris Lindahl, Baugh’s employer, told Oxygen.com last year. “We are grateful for the outpouring of support from the community and are focusing on remembering what an amazing person Monique was and helping her children.”
