Two more people have been indicted by a grand jury for their part in the 2019 kidnapping and killing of 28-year-old realtor Monique Baugh and the attempted killing of her boyfriend. 

According to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office, a grand jury on May 13 indicted Elsa Segura, 29, of Fridley, and Lyndon Wiggins, 36, of Minneapolis, on four counts each: 

  • Aiding and abetting premeditated first-degree murder
  • Aiding and abetting attempted premeditated second-degree murder 
  • Aiding and abetting kidnapping
  • Aiding and abetting first-degree felony murder while committing kidnapping

Segura and Wiggins had previously been charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and kidnapping in connection to the Dec. 31, 2019, incident. 

Segura is accused of posing as a prospective home buyer of a Maple Grove home to lure Baugh to her death. Two days later, Baugh arrived at the house for the supposed showing and was abducted by two men and taken away in a U-Haul truck. She was later found shot three times in an alley, and subsequently died at North Memorial Hospital.

The same day, Baugh's boyfriend was shot in a brazen home invasion; he told police that a masked man entered the home on the 4800 block of Humboldt Avenue North and shot him multiple times in the torso, while his and Baugh's children were in the house.

Wiggins is currently in federal custody for narcotics charges, while Segura's trial is scheduled to begin June 21. 

The grand jury's indictment is the latest update in the case. Two others accused in Baugh's kidnapping and killing were indicted in February 2020. Cedric Berry, 42, of Minneapolis, and Berry Davis, 42, of Brooklyn Park, are set to go to trial May 17.
