A Pennsylvania mom was fighting with her boyfriend when she decided to pull out her cell phone and record it. What she captured ironically ended up being her own death.
According to KTLA 5,
Wesley Webb was fighting with boyfriend Keith Smith in their home in Schuylkill Township, Pennsylvania, when she decided to start recording the argument. What she ended up recording was her own killing, police say.
Webb, 40, told Smith she would leave with her two children — three kids, all under age 14, were home at the time of Webb’s killing on the night of May 2 — but the fight continued.
In the audio recording she took with her cellphone, Smith can be heard yelling, “You want to record it now, b—-?” the Times of Chester County reports. Then a gun goes off and, police say, Smith can be heard shouting, “F— you! How’s that? That’s where we just went.”
Smith shot Webb in the chest as she sat on a couch in the living room, police say.
The 43-year-old Smith then shot himself in the face with the same 12-gauge shotgun, WPVI reports. The children came downstairs and discovered the scene, and one of them called 911, Philly.com reports. The recording continued until police arrived at the scene.
Smith “did not hesitate to kill his girlfriend. But he flinched when it came to killing himself,” according to the local district attorney.
He survived the shooting and is hospitalized in stable condition, charged with first-degree murder, third-degree murder, and endangering the welfare of children.
Webb’s recording will be admissible in court, according to the DA. Webb’s sister has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the two children she left behind.
This was probably this woman’s chance to finally have proof that she was dealing with a psycho, unfortunately, she never got the chance to show anyone. At least in this sad turn of events, there was no confusion in who killed this poor woman and her boyfriend will get justice served to him.
