A Wisconsin man, 37 year-old Willie Shavers, is emotionally destroyed as his poor decisions caused him to lose someone he loved dearly. With a cigarette in his hand, Shavers exclusively spoke with Fox 6 News Now about a love triangle that went horribly wrong.
Shavers was in a relationship with 37 year-old Misti Kruchten. They shared a home together and they had been dating for 6 years. Kruchten also has two children that lived in the home as well. During their relationship, Shavers began another relationship with another woman, 19 year-old Elaina Rookard. It appears that neither woman knew about each other. When the women discovered that Shavers was seeing them both, things took an ugly turn and their lives would never be the same.

“I’m trying to pull (Elaina) up off of Misti. Every time I calmed Elaina down, (Elaina’s friend) — she’s the one who started Elaina back up with it,” said Shavers to Fox 6 News Now.
Separating the two women, Shavers believed the fight was over as he reportedly went inside his home to check on the children. Thinking the worst was over, Shavers was stunned when he heard the sound of a gunshot.

Willie Shavers believed that the women he loved were done fighting. Thinking the fight was over between Kruchten and Rookard, Shavers turned his back and then heard a loud noise. To his surprise, it was gun shot.
“Before I got ready to respond, I heard, ‘bang.’ I jumped back. I was shocked. I see Misti stand up, I see Elaina fall and I fell to the ground,” said Shavers to Fox 6 News Now.
According to Fox 6 News Now, Rookard’s friend told police she saw Kruchten go to her vehicle, bring back a gun, “raise her arm, point the gun at (Rookard) and fire once.” Officers arrived to the scene saw the victim, Rookard, lying face down in the street. She suffered a gunshot wound and tragically, she passed away. Kruchten alleged that she was defending herself and she fired a gun as a warning. She is currently in police custody as she faces 60 years in prison.
