largerDarron Brewer (pictured left) is on trial for allegedly killing his wife, Kenyatae Coller-Brewer (pictured below),over her insurance money. Prosecutors claim Brewer had fallen out of love with her because he is gay, reports DNAInfo Chicago.

According to court documents, 22-year-old Kenyatae had obtained a life insurance policy through her employer, the U.S. National Guard. The 26-year-old Brewer reportedly plotted with his younger brother, Dujuan Powe (pictured right), to kill the mother of his two young children, so that he could have a tidy little nest egg for himself.

Cook County Assistant State Attorney Jeff Allen said in court on Monday that back in October 2009, the two siblings had first concocted a scheme to strangle Kenyatae. Powe, whose nickname is “Scooter,” was supposed to surprise his sister-in-law at her home, then choke her to death. When he saw the victim come out of the bathroom, Powe had a change of heart and instead had consensual sex with her, according to Allen.

Allen then stated that Kenyatae allegedly cried “rape” to her husband with regards to her tryst with her brother-in law. After the young mom allegedly tried to accuse Powe of forcibly assaulting her, the two brothers then plotted a fake carjacking which would end with her being murdered.


The trial record states that, on the evening of the alleged murder plot, Kenyatae picked up her husband and two children on Chicago’s South Side when she got off work. Brewer wound up driving and Kenyatae fell asleep in the passenger seat of their car while en route to their West Side home. Brewer allegedly took a detour, stopping at a gas station where Powe had been waiting and wearing a mask from the thriller, “Scream.” The masked Powe then allegedly sprung up and forced the unsuspecting Kenyatae into the trunk of the car at gunpoint, where he wound up fatally shooting her twice in the head.

The murder was captured by a nearby surveillance camera.

Brewer is also witnessed on the video fiddling around in the trunk of the car. “You’ll see [Brewer] rearrange items in the trunk that will become her coffin,” Allen said. “You’ll see the fake carjacking go down.”

Police investigators discovered the murder weapon at Powe’s girlfriend’s home.  It had been tucked away between a pile of mattresses.

Brewer and Powe’s murder trial is expected to last until June 28.
