He enlisted his brother in setting up a phony car jacking to rid himself of his wife who was standing in the way of the life he wished to live.
This episode is described as when mother of three goes missing her husband immediately notifies police and the search is on for this beloved nurse.

Take AwayWhile Kenyatae Collier-Brewer is dead, and Darron Brewer is serving 99 years, there are lessons here for anyone willing to it a thought. Karma is real. Homosexual men do not have an easy time in prison because it is assumed they are down for sexual activity. They are frequently placed in restrictive pods for their own protection where they do not have access to jobs, education etc. Think about what you do before you do it. Dujuan was a fool to participate in this activity, but he too is paying the price.
