Pregnant Woman Accused of Killing Father of Baby for Absurd Reason

When you hear about how selfish and materialistic this generation is, you think about something like this: A pregnant woman reportedly stabbed the father of her unborn child to death because he didn't buy her anything at the mall. Miata Phelan, 24, of Chicago, is hugely pregnant, yet managed to stab her boyfriend to death, reportedly because he had bought things for his cousin and son at the mall -- but not her.


Martin is 28 and the the father of Phelan's unborn child. The two of them lived together. After the shopping trip, Phelan reportedly began berating her boyfriend, Larry Martin, for being "selfish" for not buying her anything.

Their argument ended up at their house, where Phelan allegedly locked Martin out. She eventually she opened the door, only to stab Martin in the side with a knife. Horribly, Martin's 8-year-old son witnessed the whole thing.

Reportedly, the 8-year-old boy watched as his father lay dying and Phelan stood over him screaming, "This is what you get for messing with me. I hope you die, mother f-----." Tragically, he did.

It sounds like this couple had a lot more problems than just Phelan not getting any gifts at the mall. Clearly, they had a very toxic relationship. Unfortunately, two children have lost their father. And the unborn baby will likely come into this world not even having a mother either, as chances are she will be in prison for a long time. This poor baby hasn't even been born yet and already has been the victim of terrible tragedy that has left him or her without parents.

Do you really think this was about Phelan not getting things bought for her?
