Woman charged with luring realtor Monique Baugh to her death

Authorities say she posed as a prospective house buyer.

More charges have been filed in the murder of Monique Baugh, this time against a woman accused of luring the real estate agent to her death.

Elsa Segura, 28, was charged Friday with kidnapping in the case, with authorities saying she posed as a prospective home buyer in a phone call with Baugh before the murder.

According to a criminal complaint, Segura called Baugh on her personal phone on Dec. 29, and, using the name "Lisa Pawloski," left a voicemail requesting a showing at a Maple Grove home.  

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.

Cedric Berry and Berry Davis are both charged with carrying out the murder; Davis is not yet in custody, court documents say. 

According to the charges, Segura — identified as the girlfriend of a third, as-yet unnamed suspect in the case — admitted making the Dec. 29 call to Baugh and that it was her voice on the message. 

Segura is a former Hennepin County probation officer and I-35W bridge collapse survivor, the Star Tribune reports. 

She's facing up to 20 years in prison for her alleged role in the case. 

Hennepin County jail records show she is currently not in custody. 

There's still no word on a motive for the crime, though police became aware that Baugh's boyfriend had recently signed a contract to record rap music "and had been flaunting his cash on social media."

Baugh was a 28-year-old mother of two.
