Derrick Kevin Metcalf of Baytown, Texas was convicted of Capital Murder and sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 2017 killing of his 8 month pregnant girlfriend, Rose Marie Hunt.
Investigators believe Metcalf paid another man, David Galindo, $1,500 to kill Hunt. Galindo copped a plea in 2018. This week, a jury found Metcalf guilty and he was sentenced to life without parole.
At 23, Metcalf was already the father of two children. If the allegations are in fact true, I guess he didn’t want anymore. It wasn’t worth spending the rest of his life in prison for, however.
