On Friday night, sixty one year old Moszetta Reyes went through a life threatening experience. She was at her home in Biscayne Village when her daughter’s boyfriend attacked her. Fearing for her life, Reyes attempted to flee but 54 year old Arthur Wade ran after her hitting her with a large piece of stick. Reyes then grabbed a machete and chopped Reyes twice, one to the neck and the other to the right arm. Wade died yesterday. Today, Hipolito Novelo visited Reyes at her home where she recounted the horrifying ordeal.

“On Friday night at around 7:30, 54 year old Arthur Wade arrived at the home of 61 year old Moszetta Reyes, the mother of his mentally challenged girl friend. His girlfriend due to her mental condition remains confined inside a small plywood structure. That night, he wanted the keys to the lock.”

“He told me he couldn’t open the door so I told him to give me back my key and I took back the key and went upstairs. After I was up there he came an d said to give him back the key. I told him no because you said you could not open the door so I am not giving you back the key.”

“And Reyes has all reasons to worry. Even though Reyes claims self defense, the file is being sent to the DPP for advice.”
