Fridley woman guilty of all charges for role in Monique Baugh murder

Monique Baugh died New Year's Eve 2019 after being kidnapped and shot.

A 29-year-old Fridley woman could spend the rest of her life in prison after being found guilty of aiding an offender in connection to the New Year's Eve 2019 killing of 28-year-old Monique Baugh in Minneapolis. 

Elsa Segura was convicted by a Hennepin County jury for aiding and abetting premeditated first-degree murder, in addition to aiding and abetting attempted premeditated first-degree murder, aiding and abetting kidnapping, and aiding and abetting first-degree murder while committing kidnapping. 

She will be sentenced Nov. 9. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman issued a release saying her crimes carry a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of release. 

“The heinous actions by the defendant were recognized by the jury, and she was found guilty for her involvement in the death of Ms. Baugh,” Freeman said. "My thoughts go out to the victim’s family and loved ones as they continue to heal.”

Baugh, who was a Realtor in Minneapolis, was kidnapped and murdered, with Cedric Berry, of Minneapolis, and Berry Davis, of Brooklyn Park, both sentenced in July to life in prison for their roles in her killing. 

They were convicted in June on all charges against them: two counts of first-degree murder and kidnapping in connection to 28-year-old Baugh's death and attempted first-degree murder of her boyfriend, Jon Mitchell-Momoh.

Prosecutors said Berry and Davis, with the help of Segura and 36-year-old Lynda Wiggins, of Minneapolis, lured Baugh to a fake house showing in Maple Grove on Dec. 31, 2019.

That's where they abducted her and took her away in a U-Haul truck. She was later found shot three times in an alley. She died at a hospital.

Between the time Baugh was kidnapped and when she was killed, a masked man broke into a home and shot Mitchell-Momoh multiple times in the torso, investigators said. His and Baugh's two children were in the house at the time.

Investigators believed Mitchell-Momoh and Berry were in a business feud.
