State v. Travers

State v. Travers

A grand jury has charged Tiffany Travers with first-degree murder in the December 1, YR-1, shooting death of Jack Bennett at the Good Bite Café on Highway 33 outside of Nita City.

Ms. Travers and Mr. Bennett had been living together for two months immediately prior to his death. Ms. Travers was a waitress at the Good Bite, working the 6:00 to 11:00 a.m. shift. She also worked at a medical clinic from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Mr. Bennett was a police officer with the Nita City Police Department, working the night shift. Bennett often stopped at the Good Bite Café when he got off the night shift. Bennett's practice was to arrive between 6:15 and 6:30 a.m., and he would chat with Tiffany.

On the morning of December 1, YR-1, Bennett, who had just resigned from the Nita City Police Department, went to the Good Bite to see Travers. Bennett arrived at approximately 6:20 a.m. and sat in a booth. Travers was sitting in a booth at the other side of the restaurant talking with the other waitresses. She did not speak to Bennett. Then, at 6:30 a.m., Travers got up from the booth and went to the vestibule in the front of the café. Bennett followed her, and they talked for a few minutes. A shot rang out, followed by a second shot. Bennett slumped to the floor and died within minutes. Travers remained at the scene and was arrested when the police arrived.
