Boyfriend Sets Mother Of Six On Fire In Front Of Her Terrified Children. How Horrible.

Tue, March 8, 2011 11:08am EST by 13 Comments

Tyrone Levoid Harts surrendered to the L.A. police department last night after he killed his former girlfriend in front of her young children on Feb. 22. The kids called him “dad.”

This is just disturbing. 39-year-old Tyrone Levoid Harts has been booked on a homicide charge and is being held on $1 million bail after admitting that he shot and then set his his ex-lover Brandi Marie Morales, 35, on fire on Feb. 22 in her Moreno Valley, California home. The terrible thing is, her six children, ranging from the ages of six to 15, watched him as he did it.

Four of Brandi’s youngest children doused the flames before police arrived and found her body on the staircase. “To think that he can murder my daughter,” an emotional Cindy Rael, the victim’s mother, tells ABC News, “and the kids all called him ‘Dad.’ They really liked him. It breaks my heart.”

According to the declaration, Tyrone and Brandi were said to be dating for at least three years before they separated and Tyrone moved out of her home. Family members say that he was sending Brandi odd text messages in the days leading up to her murder.

On the night of Brandi’s death, her 7-year-old son told police that Tyrone called him on the phone before he went to bed, which was a usual custom for the pair. But, Tyrone also convinced the boy to leave the sliding glass door open downstairs — the same one he entered before killing Brandi.

Tyrone confessed to killing Brandi in a telephone conversation with a friend, according to police. On the recording, he allegedly said he went to the home and assaulted Brandi, but was interrupted when her eldest son entered the room. So, he fired a shot to scare the boy off, then panicked and shot her. A pathologist determined she died from a wound to the abdomen.

“These six little children are left without a mother,” Cindy Rael says, “He deserves to burn in Hell. He’s a monster.”

I know the ex mother in law to Brandy and she told us the story of Brandy today, I was appauled on how someone can do something this cruel, this senseless and without a second thought.Brandy’s youngest daughter tried to put her mother out by pouring water on her. The emotional damage will never go away. Another thing is that her ex husband’s, a.k.a her best friend, birthday was on Feb 22 and he knew something was wrong when she didn’t call him. Her mother in law, my high school teacher, had been planning his birthday party, a week before the murder. My remorse goes to and will always be with her family.i saw her ex husband and youngest daughter two weeks ago, they were on their way to visit Brandy’s grave…. The murderer should have been put to the death penelty and should be standing next to the devil himself. I never personally knew her, but I would have considered it a great honor to. Rest in peace, Brandy.

How could a person do such a thing? What goes through someones mind? It’s so hard to read let alone believe such a thing could truly happen and that people could do this. Those poor children. And I feel horrible for the boy. To think he probably blames himself for his mothers death! Then to top it all off, what? This guy will probably in jail? Life? What a punishment is that?? 3 meals a day, room and board, work, everything. They really need the death penalty back in situations like this. Somethings just aren’t right and this is one of them! Especially when the guy ADMITS it!!! SICK!

This is just hideous. I can’t imagine the trauma for these kids from witnessing this. And the way he took advantage of a trusting 7-year-old to get into the house is beyond reprehensible. Talk about shattered innocence! Given that there are six witnesses, I hope the D.A. doesn’t work out some plea bargain to speed things up. Of course, he/she might feel the need to do that to avoid putting the kids on the stand, but this guy needs to feel the fullest extent of the law.

Let me on the jury. First we convict him. Then we hang him (not enough to kill him) then we shoot him (not in vital areas but just to pin him to the floor). Then we burn him but make sure that there is no cinder left. Case closed Guilty.
