Two men have been indicted by a grand jury with the 1st-degree murder and kidnapping of Minneapolis realtor Monique Baugh on New Year's Eve.

Baugh, 28, was lured to a house in Maple Grove under the guise of a showing, before being bundled into a van, taken to an alley in North Minneapolis, and shot dead.

On Friday, a Hennepin County Grand Jury indicted Cedric Barry, 41, and Berry Davis, 40, both of Minneapolis, with her premeditated murder and kidnapping.

Barry is currently in custody and his bail has been set at $2 million, while Davis remains on the loose.

They have also been charged with attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of Baugh's boyfriend, Jon Mitchell-Momoh, after they allegedly broke into their home on the 4800 block of Humboldt Avenue North and opened fire while the couple's two young children were in the house.

Baugh's mother noticed that a key the shooter used to get into the house belonged to Baugh, whose body was found just over an hour later after she was shot three times while her hands were bound.

Two more people have been arrested in connection with the New Year's Eve incident. One of them, 28-year-old Elsa Segura, has been charged with kidnapping after making the calls that brought Baugh to the Maple Grove home.

It was reported by KARE 11 last week that the incident may have been a contract killing, paid for by a friend of Mitchell-Momoh, with whom he had a falling out over a record deal.

He also told police that he had been on social media "flashing a lot of money," and that some people thought he may have "snitched" about something, prompting them to go after him.
