POLK COUNTY, Fla - Clad in an orange jumpsuit and accompanied by two female Polk County Sheriff's deputies, Aimee Streeter, 33, was led to a waiting police car to take her to jail.
Streeter, who was picked up in Alabama Monday, is accused of shooting her estranged husband and his new fiance inside their Lakeland home Sunday night.
Deputies believe Streeter drove from Alabama, broke into the house and waited for Tabarri Clayton, 36, and Janice Lucas, 35, to come home from church.
Lucas was shot five times and remains in critical condition. Clayton was shot once in the back but was able to run out the front door to a neighbor. That neighbor then called 911 and deputies say that is when Streeter jumped in her car and started driving back to Alabama.
Deputies told ABC Action News they believe a combination of jealousy and money could be the motive behind this double shooting.
Almost two decades ago, Clayton and Lucas had a baby. Shortly after birth, their daughter fell ill and the couple split up. Lucas went on to marry another man she met and Clayton married Streeter.
While married, Clayton gave up his parental rights and Lucas's then husband adopted the girl.
However, when the child became extremely sick, Clayton and Lucas reunited, ultimately rekindling their romance. Soon after reconnecting both filed for divorce.
Their child eventually died and Lucas won a multi-million dollar settlement for medical malpractice.
Deputies believe Streeter wanted to get her hands on some of that money in the divorce. Clayton, however, did not receive any cash in the settlement because he had given up his parental rights. A portion of the money did go to Lucas's ex husband due to the adoption.
Streeter shielded her face with her hair and began crying when asked if money was her motive.
She did speak with investigators for close to two hours Wednesday night but never admitted to the double shooting.
Meanwhile, Lucas underwent surgery and family members said she is not doing well. Doctors are keeping her sedated. Clayton is also recovering in the hospital.
