Precious Dupriest is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing Billy Murray. Cops say she and the victim went to the Village Inn in Milwaukee to smoke crack cocaine and have sex.
Dupriest told officers later that she had to protect herself from Murray because he was getting aggressive and wanted to kiss her. The complaint indicates Dupriest strangled Murray and later wrapped suspenders around his neck.
The police report says Dupriest then left with Murray’s pants, money and car. She apparently sold the car for just $50 to a man minutes later.
Police discovered the car during a routine traffic stop. The man who was driving it said he bought it for $50 and indicated “Precious” sold it to him.
Officers then went to a residence where Dupriest was thought to be. When officers got there, Dupriest told them, “I know why you’re here, cuz I killed that guy.” She then apparently teared up and asked, “Am I going to prison for a long time?”
If convicted of the charges, Dupriest faces up to life in prison.
