Tiffany Pettitte faces 30 years in prison after a plea bargain for the murder of 57-year-old Donna Abshire.
On July 10, 2020, Pettitte allegedly shot Abshire to death at her home in a gated community near Independence Heights and attempted to cover it up.
When the murder occurred, Peteet was out on bail in a robbery case where she was accused of receiving $2,000 worth of Botox and Juvederm treatments and then skipping the bill.
In this case, the doctor said, he even started receiving phone threats after the charges were filed.
“She took everything from us, and what she did is irreversible,” the victim’s son, Derek, told ABC13 after the murder.
Abshire was described as a kind and lovely person who loved helping people, and her family believes this is why she was targeted.
Prosecutors said Pettitt obtained information from Abshire’s computer to access her bank accounts, credit cards, cell phone and car. They said the next day after Abshire demanded all her possessions back, Pettitt shot and killed her.
The family said the entire community was safer with Petit in custody.
“I hope she stays in jail for the rest of her life, honestly,” Derek said in 2021. “She doesn’t need to be out on the streets.”
