The divorce between the two was anything but pretty. She had discovered that after eleven years of marriage that he was a bigamist and had another wife up until the other woman died. The scorned woman was able to retain their home, a plot of land and two vehicles because she owned them before the marriage.
Alleged getaway driver, Joshua Smith, 37, is currently being held without bond and happens to be related to the surviving victim’s ex. He has been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated battery and obstruction.
Once in custody, Smith sang like a canary. He admitted to detectives that he waited in an alley behind the judges residence, heard gunfire, picked up the gunman and sped off. In a videotaped statement he said the alleged gunman got into position before 5:00 a.m. because he knew that’s when the woman routinely left the house to work out with Myles.
The plan was to rob the woman of $3000 that the ex-husband thought she would be carrying on her. He snatched her gym bag after shooting Myles, but later tossed it after finding there was no money.
Police are still searching for the gunman and a possible third party.
