Kwanmaine Boyd Wiki – Kwanmaine Boyd Biography
Kwanmaine Boyd is a Houston man who is accused of shooting his girlfriend to death days after she found out she was pregnant.
A warrant for capital murder was issued last week for Boyd in the Oct. 6 killing of Cavanna Smith, 25, records filed in Harris County District Court show.
He is 25 years old.
Smith’s body was found in the middle of the street north of downtown Houston after officers were dispatched to a report of a shooting just before 7 a.m., according to a probable cause affidavit. Smith appeared to have been shot in the head.
According to the documents, a witness later told investigators that he saw the couple arguing in the middle of a street next to a white pickup. The gunman fired once with a long gun, striking her before getting back in his truck and driving off.
Investigators later discovered that minutes before the shooting, Smith had texted a friend telling her where she was if anything happened to her, according to the documents. “Kwan” had kidnapped her, she wrote, and she was in the back of his truck.
When the friend asked why Smith said: “He got my money and don’t want to give it to me.”
The friend wrote Smith back repeatedly, but she never replied.
Investigators later found a white Chevrolet pickup that was registered to Boyd, the documents say. The license plate had been removed, and the truck was parked at an empty home with a chain and lock around the front door.
During a search of Smith’s home, investigators found a card on her dresser dated Oct. 3 and addressed to Boyd, according to the documents. Written in black Sharpie, a note inside read: “Kwan I know this isn’t what we expected but WE ARE expecting!!!”
A nurse from a local clinic told investigators that Smith had gotten an ultrasound on Oct. 5, the documents say. The nurse believed she was four and a half weeks pregnant.
Boyd remains at large as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Houston police.
