Man Shoots Prostitute Because She Wouldn't Have Sex With Him
A San Antonio, Texas man has been arrested after shooting Lenora Ivie Frago -- a hooker he hired -- because she wouldn't have sex with him on Christmas Eve.
According to KABB, Ezekiel Gilbert, 27, paid Lenora for a specific amount of time, but thirty minutes later she called a friend to come pick her up from the Camino Real Apartments. Ezekiel and Lenora got into an argument when she wouldn't return his money -- or give him sex -- so, he shot her twice -- once in the neck and once in the back -- as she got into her friend's car.
Leonora is now paralyzed from the waist down and is breathing through a ventilator.
Ezekiel has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon; if (God forbids) Lenora dies, charges will most likely be upgraded to murder. For now, however, he's free on bond.
Lenora became paralyzed and died seven months after the shooting. After almost 11 hours of deliberations that stretched over two days, a jury acquitted Ezekiel of murder on June 5, 2013. During closing arguments, Ezekiel's lawyers admitted to the shooting, but claimed their client's intent wasn't to kill Lenora -- he was merely trying to retrieve stolen property: the $150 he paid her. It became theft when she refused to have sex with him or give the money back, they said. Outside of the courtroom, Ezekiel thanked God, his attorneys and the jury for being able to “see what wasn't the truth” and for the “second chance.” He added: “I sincerely regret the loss of the life of Ms. Frago. 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.”
