The “on-again-off-again” boyfriend of a Texas teenager murdered just weeks after giving birth has been arrested, according to a report.
Trevon Wright, 17, was arrested Monday by the U.S. Marshals Task Force and taken to the Dallas County Jail, according to Dallas police. He was arrested and charged with murder for the death of 17-year-old Ikea Imari Hood, who was shot and killed at a home in the southeast section of Oak Cliff on Sunday morning.
Hood gave birth three weeks prior to the shooting. She and Wright’s tumultuous relationship occurred over the last two years, an arrest affidavit obtained by FOX 4 states.
The mother of the Lancaster High School junior, who was a member of the Tigerette Drill Team, told investigators her daughter had just learned Wright was not the father of her newborn daughter and planned to tell him Jan. 7.
