Moberly Teen Charged with Second-Degree Murder
"It seems like his door was getting busted in, he had like 3-4 padlocks, I think, on his door," said neighbor Kristi Taylor. "I went outside, he has a parts truck parked out back, and there was a big rod and they threw it through the windshield. He's got stuff written all over his doors, names wrote all over his doors."
Taylor said Bennett harassed Shoaf for months.
"He was threatened to be killed, Anthony was," added neighbor Mikel Butts. "Isaac was always harassing him, threatening to kick his rear."
Butts found the 17-year-old Bennett shot to death in Shoaf's Moberly home about 9:30 p.m. Monday. Police said Bennett and his twin sister, Heather, went to Shoaf's house because she was upset with Shoaf, her former boyfriend.
Heather Bennett told police she argued with Shoaf who pushed her. Some people said Shoaf shot Isaac while Bennett was protecting Heather. But, Taylor told police Shoaf was just defending himself.
"That's what he bought the gun for in the first place," said Taylor. "He said, 'I bought it for a reason, to protect myself.'"
Shoaf is in the Randolph County Justice Center on a $1 million bond. His preliminary hearing is expected to take place early next week.
