Texas prostitute's jilted killer acquitted, was trying to 'retrieve stolen property' says jury
Ezekiel Gilbert, 30, facing life in jail for the 2009 death of Lenora Frago, 23, near his San Antonio home, got off even though he shot her with an AK-47. But a jury said his actions were justified under state law.

Ezekiel Gilbert, 30, was found not guilty of murdering an escort he hired from Craigslist. Gilbert's lawyers argued that because Lenora Ivie Frago had left his house with the $150 he'd paid her, without having sex with him, he was within his rights to use deadly force to retrieve his property.

A Texas john who shot a Craigslist escort dead after she took $150 of his cash but refused to have sex has been cleared of murder.

Ezekiel Gilbert, 30, was facing life in jail for the 2009 Christmas Eve killing of Lenora Frago, 23, outside his San Antonio apartment.

Gilbert used a AK-47 assault rifle to spray his alleged victim's car with bullets as she was driven away at 4:15 a.m. by her alleged pimp, Christopher Perkins.

Frago was hit in the neck.

Left paralyzed and brain damaged from the shooting, she was hooked up to a respirator for several months until her family pulled the plug in July 2010.

A Bexar County Texas court jury on Thursday took 11 hours to acquit Gilbert — saying his actions were justified because he was simply trying to retrieve stolen property.
Ezekiel Gilbert, 30, was acquitted of murder in the 2009 shooting of Lenora Ivie Frago, a Craiglist escort, who died in 2010. Gilbert fired an AK-47 at the victim's car as she was driven away by her alleged pimp, Christopher Perkins.

Ezekiel Gilbert, 30, was acquitted of murder in the 2009 shooting of Lenora Ivie Frago, a Craiglist escort, who died in 2010. Gilbert fired an AK-47 at the victim's car as she was driven away by her alleged pimp, Christopher Perkins.

This is because state residents are permitted "to use deadly force to recover property during a nighttime theft."

Gilbert's defense attorneys argued he did not intend to kill Frago and only wanted to blow out the car tires and get back his cash.

They also said the shooting was justified, as he thought sex was included as part of the fee.

Gilbert hugged his attorneys and thanked God, his lawyers, and the jury following his acquittal, reports My San Antonio.

"I sincerely regret the loss of the life of Ms. Frago," he said outside the court room.

"I've been in a mental prison the past four years of my life. I have nightmares. If I see guns on TV where people are getting killed, I change the channel," he added.

jesus fkn christ:wow:
 
Sounds like the shooter needs help, if his last statement in that there OP is anything to go by.
 
You can get hookers from Craigslist?
 
And I always thought that the last place you ever wanted to kill someone was Texas.
 
Yeah, turns out Texas is severely ****ed up in a lot of ways.
 
To play devil's advocate, she did steal his money.

It shouldn't be legal to shoot someone for stealing $150 dollars. It shouldn't be legal to shoot someone for stealing anything or to use threat of lethal force to make someone return stolen property to you. It should only be legal to shoot someone if that person poses an immediate physical threat to the life and safety of yourself or someone else. That's the only circumstance under which it should ever be acceptable to shoot someone, and even then there have to be very specific restrictions to prevent people from using the fact that someone shoved them to justify shooting that person in the face.
 
Well this has reinforced my resolve to never go to Texas. What a f*** up place.
 
So he murdered a woman with an assault rifle that he fired into the back of a moving vehicle who took money he gave as a gift in order to avoid a legal issue for an unspecified service from an online advertisement in which she did not fulfill the verbal contract he thought they agreed to.

Yeah that seems reasonable.
 
This is Texas so I'm both surprised and not surprised that this is the outcome. They'll electrocute someone who is mentally diminished but let a guy shoot a hooker to death with an AK-47 over $150 go free since she didn't provide sex with her robbery.
 
But it wasn't stolen if he gave her the money. :huh:

That's the most confusing thing about this.

This is Texas so I'm both surprised and not surprised that this is the outcome.

Came in here expecting negative and stereotypical comments about my home state. Was not disappointed. :whatever:

What was done was absolutely heinous. But, seriously, guys, this is getting really, really old.

Agreed.

This sort of thing isn't just exclusive to this state. People are just calling it out because it's such an easy target.
