— Cory Jiggets was indicted Monday in the murder of Skye Moniqua Lee, the mother of his child.

Jiggets, 19, of Fidelity Drive, was being held without bond in the Durham County Jail.

Lee was found dead in her apartment at 3628 Keystone Place March 30 when officers responded to calls about a shooting. Her 10-month-old boy was inside the apartment unharmed, police said.

About an hour later, officers arrested Jiggets as he tried to run out the back door of a house on Young Street, police said.

Investigators said they believe that the motive for the slaying was domestic. Jiggets was the father of Lee's 10-month-old son, and a judge had ordered him to stay away from her following a December assault, police said.

Lee was a senior at Northern High School in Durham.

    Pray tell me how having a baby precludes somebody from being bad!

    It don't.Some people don't even know what they are talking about. A girl lost her life because her alledged boyfriend killed her, taking a child away from his mother for life. Just pray for this baby that he will grow to have a happy life.

    “they had a baby together,he must not be that all bad,wait until marriage,learn moral values,and this would have never happened.”

    050462,
    Your logic eludes me. Are you suggesting the fact that they had a baby together somehow mitigates his behavior, and if they were married he would not have killed her? Honestly I seek to understand before I seek to be understood but I am at a loss with this one.

    I think he is just another one that thought the law does not apply to him.Give him life in prison or death,more death sentences might stop or at least slow this kind of violence down.How many young lives do we loose before N.C. wakes up , the only way to stop this is to show we are a state that will put up with it any longer.

    Prisons should be work camps. Make them earn their keep or go without food. You wonder why there are so many prisoners here? Because compared to other countries its like a holiday. No tvs, no work out equipment, etc etc - just hard labour is all they deserve.

    I'll donate a bullet to the authorities who have him.

    That's why I agree with Chris Rock, forget gun control, how about bullet control? Price the bullets at $10K a piece...
