Often times relationships come with several ups and down, verbal arguments, and heated break ups. A University of California, Riverside student has been recently charged with taking a break up one step further by soliciting a boyfriend to kill her ex.
Barbara Wu, 21, has recently been charged with soliciting murder, making terrorist threats, vandalism and stalking, among other crimes. Dennis Lin, who dated Wu, sought a restraining order
against Wu on May 24, two days after she allegedly asked him to kill an ex-boyfirend. In his request for a restraining order, Lin wrote that Wu made him promise on May 22 that he would break the man’s legs with a baseball bat, kill him, and discard the body. At the request of police, Lin recorded Wu discussing the alleged murder plot, leading to the arrest of the 21-year-old student.
Four months before her arrest, Wu sought a restraining order against a former boyfriend. She contended she suffered physical and emotional trauma. The temporary restraining order was granted for two months, but a no permanent restraining order was issued as Wu withdrew her request for a permanent order.
“Passions and emotions are a scary thing,” Wu tweeted before her arrest.
Wu is being held on $500,000 bail. She is order to appear in court on July 9 for felony sentencing conference.
