PITTSBURG (CBS SF) – A Pittsburg woman who was cheating on her husband was arrested Wednesday along with three other men – including the woman’s boyfriend – after a burglary plot against the husband turned deadly, according to authorities.
28-year-old Charmaine Leon Guerrero Taijeron was in custody after her unidentified husband stabbed to death an intruder in their Leland Road apartment. The intruder was identified as 54-year-old Robert Earl Lindsey, a transient with a lengthy criminal history according to Pittsburg Police.
Taijeron was arrested along with 22-year-old Matt Terrell Parker, his brother, 21-year-old Charles Edward Parker, and 21-year-old Jimmy Watkins Salgado.
Pittsburg Police Lt. Ron Raman said that Taijeron’s husband had learned that she had been having an affair with Matt Parker, and the couple had decided to separate.
According to Lt. Raman, the husband was taking longer to move out than Taijeron anticipated, so she and the others allegedly hatched a plan to burglarize her husband’s medical marijuana grow at the apartment in hopes of intimidating her husband into moving out quickly.
Taijeron provided Charles Parker, Salgado and Lindsey with keys to the apartment, Raman said.
But when Lindsey – armed with a replica gun – entered the apartment, the husband – who had gotten his own firearm – confronted him and the two struggled, with both losing their weapons, police said.
The husband then retrieved a knife and fatally stabbed Lindsey in the neck, according to Raman.
Taijeron and the three other suspects were being held on suspicion of homicide due to their involvement in the conspiracy that led to the death of Lindsey, police said, even though neither Taijeron nor Matt Parker were at the home during the burglary.
Charles Parker and Salgado fled the home, but were detained by police shortly after arriving at the scene.
The husband had no knowledge of the burglary plot, acted in self-defense and was not arrested, police said.
He was not hurt during the incident.
