Miata Phelan will probably end up spending the rest of her life behind bars, if she’s found guilty of killing her boyfriend, allegedly because he didn’t buy her a gift.
24-year-old Phelan, who is pregnant, allegedly stabbed Larry Martin, on April 30 inside their Chicago home.
“This is what you get for messing with me. I hope you die mother f—-r,” the woman allegedly said over Martin’s body.
The trouble started earlier in the day, with a family trip to a local shopping mall. Martin bought gifts for his 8-year-old son Lavelle and for Martin’s 25-year-old cousin, but tragically, not for Phelan.
The woman, who is seven months pregnant, blasted her 28-year-old boyfriend for being “selfish,” Assistant State Attorney Glen Runk told The Chicago Tribune.
Phelan started attacking Martin while he was driving home from the mall—nearly causing an accident. When Martin stopped to run an errand, Phelan reportedly kicked and scratched him, then drove off with the car.
Martin, his son, and the cousin were forced to walk back home.
But Phelan hadn’t cooled down yet. She locked the trio out of the home, while Martin banged on the door, begging to be let in.
When Phelan finally opened the door, prosecutors say the woman stabbed Martin with a knife while his young son watched.
“His last words was to me,” Lavelle told the Sun-Times. “He said, ‘I’m gonna die, but I love you.’ ”
Phelan was charged with first-degree murder. Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil set her bail at $1 million.
Phelan’s sister, Arnesia Phelan, claims Martin had been a physically abusive boyfriend.
