Monique Baugh, 28, was a Minneapolis realtor and mother of two daughters, ages one and three.

Prosecutors say Elsa Segura of Fridley, and her former boyfriend, Lyndon Wiggins of Minneapolis, have been indicted by a Hennepin County Grand Jury for their part in the 2019 New Year's Eve kidnapping and murder of 28-year-old real estate agent, Monique Baugh, and the attempted murder of her boyfriend.

Prosecutors say the 29-year-old Segura made phone calls that lured Baugh to a house showing in Maple Grove, where Baugh was allegedly abducted on Dec. 31, 2019. She was later found shot in a Minneapolis alley, and Baugh died a short time later.

Thursday's indictments listed four counts each against Segura and Wiggins: aiding and abetting premeditated first-degree murder, aiding and abetting attempted premeditated second-degree murder, aiding and abetting kidnapping, and aiding and abetting first-degree felony murder while committing kidnapping.

The Hennepin County Attorney's Office says Wiggins and Segura had previously been charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder, and kidnapping in connection with the case. 

Wiggins is currently in federal custody for narcotics charges. Segura is scheduled for jury trial to begin June 21, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors say two other co-defendants in the case, Berry Davis, 42, of Brooklyn Park, and Cedric Berry, 42, of Minneapolis, were indicted in February 2020 by a Hennepin County Grand Jury for the same charges Wiggins and Segura now face.

The jury trial for Davis and Berry is scheduled to begin May 17, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.
