Former Policeman Killed Mistress and Child Over Child Support, Argue Prosecutors

A former D.C. officer shot his mistress to death and left their child to die in a hot car in Prince George's, according to prosecutors.

 

Prosecutors in the murder trial of a former D.C. police officer say he shot his mistress to death and left their child to die in a hot car in Prince George's County, according to The Washington Times.

Richmond Diallo Phillips, 40, allegedly killed the two because he didn't want to pay child support, argued prosecutor Angela Alsobrooks during opening statements Monday, the Times reported. The case is the first that Alsobrooks, Prince George's County State's Attorney, has personally prosecuted since being elected in 2010,  according to The Washington Times.  

Defense lawyer Brian Denton said his client is innocent and called the evidence circumstantial, according to Times. 

Phillips, of Temple Hills, MD, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and with child abuse, according to court records.

Phillips was arrested in June 2011 after Wynetta Wright, 20, was found on June 2 suffering from trauma to her body in Oxon Run Stream Valley Park, according to Prince George's County police. She was shot in the head, WJLA reported

Her infant daughter, Jaylin, was found abandoned in a car in the 2400 block of Southern Avenue and was pronounced dead, police said. The child was in her car seat with the doors closed and windows rolled up, according to the The Washinton Times.

@sweetjoneswaterfalls....this must really be overwhelming to you. Unfortunately too many women accept having men in their lives that are half stepping. You were smart enough to know that this was a dead-end relationship and got out...good for you. Women - "self-love" and put an end to these deceitful men who want the cake and to eat it too!
