A man called 911 to say he had been shot and stabbed as a woman lay dead in his home. The man tried to escape but died hours later at the hospital.
Now, the killer who was staying with the two will head to prison for at least three decades for their murders.
But why the housemate turned to murder remains a mystery.
Recently, a judge in Oregon sentenced Ashley Margaret Webber to two life sentences for the crime. She will be parole eligible after 35 years, according to KPIC.
Webber pleaded guilty to intentionally causing the death of Michael Lambert and Jasmine Moon-Painter on April 11, 2020.
Around 6:30 a.m. on the fateful day, Lambert called 911 in Coos County, Oregon, to say he had been shot and stabbed, according to The Bandon Western World. Lambert escaped to a neighbor’s house after being attacked in his home.
Lambert was taken to the hospital, where he died hours later from his injuries.
Medical authorities said Lambert suffered a gunshot wound to the neck, though it was not fatal, according to The World. He also had several stabbed wounds to the back of the neck. Some of the wounds pierced his lung, which caused internal bleeding and his death.
At Lambert’s home, police found Moon-Painter, who died from multiple gunshot wounds.
That same day police arrested Webber in connection to the murders. She had been staying at the home where the incident happened. But police and news reports have not noted a possible motive about why she killed her housemates.
Webber was arrested that day and booked into jail, where she has remained. Now, she’ll head to prison for the brutal deaths.
