5/31/2016 - OKC, OK -- A woman working online as a prostitute has been charged with participating in the robbery of her ‘John’ and then stabbing him multiple times – leaving him for dead.
According to a probable cause affidavit, previously filed in Oklahoma County last Oct., an unidentified man living in Oklahoma City contacted a woman advertising herself as a prostitute on Backpage.com. The woman agreed to come to the man’s home at 3201 N. Maloney Dr., “with the intentions of performing sexual favors for money for the home owner.”
After the woman arrived, she and the homeowner sat in the living room sharing a cigarette and beer. After negotiating the amount the homeowner would pay for the sex act, the woman excused herself to retrieve a menthol cigarette from her car.
The homeowner followed the woman and was subsequently attacked from behind by an unknown male in front of his residence.
While the homeowner was attempting to defend himself from the attacker, the woman allegedly produced a knife and began repeatedly stabbing the homeowner.
The homeowner collapsed on the ground with life threatening wounds as the woman and the male attacker fled the scene.
Investigators were able to locate DNA at the scene of the crime and sent it to their lab for analysis.
On March 22, the results of the DNA test came back and were entered into the FBI Federal DNA Database. The results came back with a match for 29-year-old Kimberley Anne Banning. Court documents list Banning’s home address as an apartment in the 6800 block of NW 16 in Oklahoma City.
A Detective with the Oklahoma City Police Dept. located Banning in the Oklahoma County Jail – where she was being detained in regard to a Sept. 2015 conviction for DUI, driving with a suspended license and obstructing an officer.
The Detective, armed with a search warrant, took buccal swab DNA samples of Banning for conclusive comparison.
Banning has a 2012 conviction for DUI and driving with a revoked license.
There has been no reason given as to why Banning was not charged with prostitution, robbery and/or attempted murder.
The lesson here boys and girls is that nothing good ever comes from Backpage.com.
