A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
One man is still wanted for a New Year's Eve murder and Toledo Police need the public's help to find him.
Kevin Brooks, 23, Ashley Hundstrucker, 23, and Daquaine Booth, 25, were all charged with murder in the death of Brian Minley. Booth is still on the run. Brooks was already in the Lucas County Jail on an unrelated charge. Hundstrucker was arrested and booked into the jail Wednesday.
Brooks and and Hundstrucker are each being held on a one million dollar bond after arraignment Thursday morning.
All three face murder charges in connection to a shooting that took place on New Year's Eve 2012.
Now the search is on for Booth, who police say is known to spend time in north Toledo.
The victim, also known as B. Eazy, was found shot to death in his Berdan Avenue home on December 31, 2012. Minley was a music producer and student at the University of Toledo.
Tears were flowing down the face of Ashley McGaha when she heard the news of the arrests, months after she says the love of her life died in her arms.
"I cry every night," McGaha said. "I cried myself to sleep last night because all I could get in my head was the picture of the blood dripping out of his face and me giving him CPR…trying to make his heart beat."
She says she can't get the image out of her mind. Her long-time friend, boyfriend, and soon-to-be husband Minley was shot in the basement of their home.
"We had plans for our lives," she said. "They have taken everything away from me, and I just hope they spend the rest of their lives in jail."
Court records show Minley was shot during a robbery. According to police, Booth and Brooks were involved, and Hundstrucker drove the getaway car. McGaha says she know Hundstrucker.
"I went to school with her. I grew up with her family. They live across the street from my mother's house."
After learning police made the arrests Wednesday, McGaha says she could not contain her emotions.
"I've been praying for this for five months," she said.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Daquaine Booth is asked to call Crimestoppers at 419-255-1111.
