Court records show a 28-year-old man who was charged with murder after mercilessly shooting his girlfriend’s brother in front of the eyes of his three children while all the victim was trying to do was protect his sister and nieces from the man’s abusive behavior will spend the rest of his life behind bars as the jury agreed on a life sentence because he had already failed to take advantage of the “several second chances” given and continued to hurt people.
According to reports, 28-year-old Kempsha exhibited abusive behavior towards his girlfriend for an extended period of time, although she gave him several chances to change. The last time he got abusive was over an argument they had about him contacting another woman. The argument quickly turned violent, and he once again started beating and choking his girlfriend, who then took a handgun and fired a shot as a warning, saying she wanted him out of her home.
Following the incident, she sent her brother, Spencer, a message asking for help. Spencer arrived at the apartment immediately to help his sister and nieces, who were in danger, but so did Kempsha, who decided to return to the home following the altercation, but this time armed with an AK-47-style assault rifle. Another altercation ensued, and Kempsha started threatening his girlfriend and her brother, but Spencer managed to somehow convince his sister’s partner to leave and decided to take his sister and his nieces to his home for the night.
However, the altercation was far from over. The next day, Spencer, accompanied by his three children, his sister, and her two daughters, went back to the apartment to change clothes, but while there, Kempsha arrived armed with two other men. The woman pulled out her gun, but Kempsha quickly disarmed her and then turned to Spencer to confront him. He then put a gun to Spencer’s chest and fired one shot, eventually killing him in front of his three minor children.
Kempsha then fled the scene following the incident, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Several days later, he was arrested on an unrelated narcotics charge and then charged with murder. Kempsha was sentenced to life in prison last week, on Thursday.
