Two men charged in the New Year’s Eve kidnapping and killing of real estate agent Monique Baugh have been indicted on first-degree murder charges.
Cedric Berry, 41, of Minneapolis, was indicted by a Hennepin County grand jury on two counts of aiding and abetting first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder and one count of kidnapping.
Berry Davis, 40, was indicted on the same counts. The men were charged in January with lower counts.
Berry appeared in court briefly Friday, where bail was kept at $2 million. He fidgeted and tapped his fingers.
Charges allege that Baugh, a 28-year-old mother of two, was lured to a fake home showing in Maple Grove, kidnapped in a U-Haul rental truck and shot hours later, about 6:38 p.m., in a north Minneapolis alley.
Baugh’s boyfriend, Jon Mitchell-Momoh, was shot about 5:40 p.m. that day in the couple’s north Minneapolis home. He survived.
Also charged are Shante Davis, 38, and Elsa Segura, 28, a former Hennepin County probation officer and I-35W bridge collapse survivor.
According to charges and search warrant affidavits, authorities believe Mitchell-Momoh, a rising rap star, was the intended target in the apparent murder-for-hire plot.
