    New details emerge in pregnant mom's killing


    Authorities said on Friday they believe two 15-year-olds boys who were involved in a spree of summer robberies killed a pregnant Beaumont woman and her daughter in June.

    Johnny Phifer, 15, was certified Thursday to stand trial as an adult. He is charged with capital murder and attempted capital murder for his alleged role in robberies on June 6 and July 12.

    Dustin Bernard, 22, who was charged this summer with attempted capital murder in the July 12 robbery, is also a suspect in the June 6 killing of Kera Teel, according to a probable cause affidavit released on Friday.

    Kera Teel, 19, was seven months pregnant when she was shot in the parking lot of the SiennaTrails apartment complex just before 2 a.m. on June 6 during an attempted robbery. Kyndal Teel died after her birth at a Beaumont hospital.

    According to the affidavit, autopsies revealed that Kera died from gunshot wounds to her upper body, and Kyndal "died as a result of her mother dying."

    Bernard allegedly drove Phifer and another 15-year-old, who is in police custody but has not yet been certified to stand trial as an adult, to Sienna Trails in his black BMW, planning to burglarize cars and rob people, the affidavit states.

    Phifer told police that the other minor, wearing a white cloth over his face, tried to open Teel's car door. When she refused to open the door, he forcibly opened it and shot her, Phifer said.

    He told police that he and Bernard witnessed the shooting and that all three fled in the BMW to another location, where they attempted to rob another person, according to the affidavit.

    All three are accused in the affidavit of capital murder charges, though Bernard and the unnamed teen have not yet been charged.

    Randi King, chief of the Jefferson County District Attorney's Family Law Division, said Phifer was certified to stand trial as an adult on Thursday in Judge Larry Thorne's 317th District Court. Phifer was booked at the Jefferson County jail on Thursday night after being transferred from the Minnie Rogers Juvenile Justice Center, where he was being held on lesser charges.

    His bond is set at $2.5 million.

    Phifer is also charged with attempted capital murder for his alleged involvement in a July 12 robbery on Yorktown Lane, King said. Bernard was indicted by a Jefferson County Grand Jury in July on a charge of attempted capital murder for his alleged involvement in the same robbery.

    According to a probable cause affidavit filed in that incident, Phifer and another minor told police that Bernard drove them to the home on Yorktown Lane around 6 a.m., gave them guns and "collected them at the end of their activities."

    The other teen told police that he and Phifer saw the homeowner standing about 10 feet away, thought he had a gun and fired at him through a sliding glass door. They "ran to the waiting car, driven by Bernard," he said, who allegedly fired two shots in the air before driving away.

    Bernard was arrested in July on an outstanding probation violation warrant and four guns were found in the house, including one that was a forensic match to the weapon used in the Yorktown Lane shooting, according to the affidavit.

    Jefferson County Grand Jury Attorney Cory Kneeland said Wednesday that once the second minor is certified, charges against all three will be brought before a grand jury at the same time.

    A certification hearing has been set for a second juvenile expected to be charged in the case, King said. She declined to say when.

    Last month, prosecutors dropped charges against two other people arrested in the Teel case. Jared "Bulldog" Bias, who was charged with capital murder, and Atayanna Douglas, who was charged with attempted robbery, have both been released from custody.

    Police said Douglas, who initially identified Bias as the shooter in the Teel case, lied about her involvement with the case.

    Absolutely. Give them the same consideration that they gave their victims.
    The word RACIST, and the ability to debate race-related issues rationally, are the kryptonite of white common sense.

    After the first one, the rest are free.

    He has even marked a target cross for you. Very thoughtful of him. I would range him out and give him a little pain and time to think before hitting the mark.

    Second teen certified as adult in pregnant mom murder
    Monday, December 11, 2017


    A second 15-year-old boy has been certified to stand trial as an adult in the June killing of a pregnant Beaumont woman and her infant daughter.

    Corey Spencer, the alleged gunman in the June 6 fatal shooting of Kera Teel, was certified in 317th District Court on Monday. He faces charges of capital murder and attempted capital murder from the Teel shooting and a July 12 attempted robbery, prosecutor John Nelson said.

    Spencer said he was not involved in the killing on Monday as he left the courtroom in handcuffs.

    Teel, 19, was seven months pregnant when she was shot in the parking lot of the Sienna Trails apartment complex just before 2 a.m. during an attempted robbery. Kyndal Teel died after her birth at a Beaumont hospital.

    Nelson said Spencer is the alleged "trigger man" in Teel's death. He was 14 at the time.

    Johnny Phifer, 15, who was certified on Nov. 30 as an adult in the case, told police that Spencer shot Teel after she refused to open her car door, according to Phifer's arrest affidavit.

    Nelson said Phifer and Spencer are friends and are distantly related. Investigators do not believe the two are gang members, though Nelson said they were "familiar with the culture."

    He said attempted robbery appears to be the motive in the crime.

    According to the affidavit, Phifer told police that Dustin Bernard, 22, drove the teens to the apartment complex on June 6, planning to rob people and burglarize cars.

    Phifer told police that Spencer, wearing a white cloth over his face, tried to open Teel's car door. When she refused to open the door, he forcibly opened it and shot her, Phifer is quoted in the affidavit.

    He told police that he and Bernard witnessed the shooting and that all three fled in Bernard's BMW to another location, where they attempted to rob another person, according to the affidavit.

    Both teens are also charged with attempted capital murder in a July 12 robbery on Yorktown Lane.

    Bernard was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury in July on a charge of attempted capital murder for his alleged involvement in the same robbery.

    According to a probable cause affidavit filed in that incident, Phifer and Spencer told police that Bernard drove them to the home on Yorktown Lane around 6 a.m., gave them guns and "collected them at the end of their activities."

    Spencer told police that he and Phifer saw the homeowner standing about 10 feet away, thought he had a gun and fired at him through a sliding glass door. They "ran to the waiting car, driven by Bernard," he said, who allegedly fired two shots in the air before driving away.

    Bernard was arrested in July on an outstanding probation violation warrant and four guns were found in the house, including one that was a forensic match to the weapon used in the Yorktown Lane shooting, according to the affidavit.

    He has not been charged in Teel's death, though he is a suspect in the case. Jefferson County

    Grand Jury Attorney Cory Kneeland said previously that charges against all three will be brought before a grand jury at the same time.

    Attorney Bruce Smith, who represented Spencer, said he argued that the teen was not sophisticated and mature enough to be treated as an adult, and that there was not sufficient evidence to connect him to Teel's killing.

    He argued that prosecutors needed evidence other than the testimony of an accomplice to find probable cause that Spencer committed the crime.

    "If you have a suspect who allegedly did this when he was only 14 years of age, I think the evidence needs to be really, really strong ... because the public can be sufficiently protected by continuing to treat him as a juvenile," he said. "I didn't think there was sufficient evidence."

    Smith said Spencer and Phifer will both have court-appointed attorneys going forward. He said he feels comfortable that the judges of both of Jefferson County's criminal courts "will bend over backwards to protect (Spencer's) rights" and treat him fairly.

    Attorney Jefferson Fisher, who represents Teel's husband, Andrew, in a civil suit against the apartment complex where she was killed, said the hearing was emotional for the family, who left the courtroom without speaking to media.

    "This has been a long journey, it's going to continue to be a long journey," he said.

    Spencer is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday morning, Nelson said.
