The bizarre case of Marni Yang, the Chicago-area woman convicted of murdering the pregnant girlfriend of former Bears player Shaun Gayle, has come to an end with Yang being sentenced to life in prison.
Yang, who was also romantically tied to Gayle, shot Rhoni Reuter six times and was convicted of killing both Reuter and Reuter and Gayle’s unborn child.
The judge who sentenced Yang said she carried out “the methodical, meticulous and maniacal” crime because she was jealous that she couldn’t have Gayle for herself. Gayle testified in the trial and said afterward that he was devastated that his relationship with Yang had led to her jealous rage toward Reuter.
“I’ll always have regrets,” Gayle said. “That’s going to be something I live with and I knew that the moment the task force identified who had done this.”
