Faces of Domestic Violence #31dbc

Today we will feature a young man who was killed by his ex-girlfriend. She set this young man up, inviting him to a home, only to have people waiting to beat and kill him.

 

A 16-year-old girl faces life in prison after she was found guilty of the murder of her teenage ex-boyfriend who was beaten, shot and mutilated after she lured him to his death. 

Amber Wright became the third person to be found guilty for a role in the brutal killing of Seath Jackson, 15.

Jurors in Ocala, Florida, delivered their verdict  after just two hours of deliberations and five days of witness testimony. Wright, 16, was being tried with her brother Kyle Hooper, 17, with separate juries.

The teens face life in prison for their part in the murder of Seath last April. 

Along with Michael Bargo Jr, 20, Justin Soto, 21 and Charlie Kay Ely, 19, they are accused of luring Seath back to Charlie Kay Ely’s Summerfield home where they beat and shot him to death. 

They allegedly mutilated his body and threw it into a burn pit outside the home.

Ely was convicted last fall and is now serving a life sentence. Soto pleaded guilty on May 30 and was sentenced to life in prison, according toOcala.com. 

Wright’s defense team tried to argue that there was nothing linking the 16-year-old to the crime scene and it was only in recorded video interview with authorities did she admit that she came up with the plan with the other defendants.

But prosecutors charged that if it was not for text messages sent by Wright throughout the day luring him to the home, Seath would never have went to the Summerfield home.

Her brother Kyle Hooper took the stand earlier today in his own trial and admitted everything under cross examination.ht_seath_tyler_jackson_jrs_110421_ssv
