Washington state woman accused of hiring teen to kill ex-husband in murder-for-hire plot
Cops say Shaerin Kelley purchased a GPS device to track her husband

Washington state police have accused a woman of hiring a teenage hitman to whack her ex-husband –who survived after being shot nine times.

Authorities say Shaerin Kelley, 30, agreed to pay the 17-year-old $13,000 to murder her former spouse, Baron Li, who was shot in July in Bellevue, according to KOMO-TV.

Court documents paint a deliberate and disturbing murder-for-hire scheme, the station reported.

Bellevue police announced the arrests of Kelley and the teen on attempted murder charges Friday.

“Something like this is rare,” Maj. Travess Forbush said, KOMO reported.

Jury finds woman acted in self-defense in 2019 shooting that led to a man’s death
Sterling Parker was shot outside of Walle Rockets Bar in Oct. 2019 after allegedly intervening in a fight between Hankins and his sister.

    Lawd halp, the FIRST Story just goes to show no matter how pretty she is or sweet she seems, somebody, somewhere, can sometimes be tired of putting up with her sh^t. We never know, but that picture of her screams HIGH MAINTENANCE. Welp, Strap on Sally will make a cheap date out of her. Man puulleeze, you can’t even get a teenager to properly clean their room, or load a dishwasher, how daHell you expect them to properly off your ex? Wonder what she paid him besides the 13K$?

    Toledo story, man ain’t she a winner? Didn’t even have to see the picture to know what part of the ‘hood she was from. You know, we talk about the concerns of America turning into a 3rd world sh^thole country; sadly many areas are already like that. Must be the legacy of all that slavery they had in Ohio. /s/ I personally think many of them have an attitude because of the name de momma hung on them. Betcha anything the fight started over some ‘hoodrat baby daddy wanna be.

    And speaking of Lawd Halp and revolvers HONEY HUSH!…AND…CHILD PUULL-EEZE!!! Sister Golden Haired Surprise seems to be packing a pair of .38s…and I bet that they are not innocent. Semi-concealed weapons. Yep!

    Got lost over there in the Thompson linky. Yeah, I know, big surprise, it was planned to get me lost over there. Ol’J.Edgar pictured posing with one, wonder if he still has a picture of him dressed as a gun moll, ala, Bonnie holding that gat? Watched at an episode of Combat with Vic Morrow last evening on the Heroes and Icons free TV Broadcast Channel. He loved his Thompson. We fired them for familiarization way back yonder and had a FIRST Sergeant that had carried one in three wars. Had one in the Battery Arms Room with his name on it.

  2. That Thompson wasn’t the same as we had onboard the Okinawa. We had the wood horizontal hand grip under a possible shorter barrel. I don’t remember if the charging handle was on the top or left side of the receiver since it was a long time ago. Shot it off the fantail at empty food cans along with the B.A.R,M-1 Garand, M-1 Carbine and 1911 .45 for qualification at different times while at sea. Some of the Fox Div. Guys bought shotgun shells and we had trap shooting off of the flight deck with a small fee to cover the cost of the ammo. Watched them a couple of times but never participated.

    The pictured one is a 1928 type. The one you describe is the later, somewhat-simplified for wartime manufacture M-1 type.

      Also, the civilian modern ones with buttstocks have the required 16 inch barrels to avoid the NFA paperwork. The original civvy guns pre-dated the NFA and were shorter, as were the GI types.

      They are a hoot to shoot.

    “Teenage Shooter” shot Li, then stood over him and shot him 8 more times…. and Li is (thankfully) still alive? What was he using a .22 or .25?

    “…nine times – in the legs, arms and chest…Li’s right arm was said to have been ‘shattered’ after multiple bullets hit it while he was using it to protect himself…..”

    And no head shot while standing over the victim? Chances are this is the first time “Teenage Shooter” had shot anybody.

    I’ve heard that divorces can be acrimonious, but this action is a bit too far.
