Here is Marni Yang, Shaun Gayle today, twelve years after Rhoni Reuter death in 2007.
Marni Yang is to seek new trial eight years after her conviction for the 2007 murder of former Chicago Bear Shaun Gayle’s pregnant girlfriend in Deerfield
Shaun Gayle, now 57 years old, currently works as an NFL analyst for Sky Sports, appearing on the weekly NFL broadcast and at the Chicago Bears Fan Convention.
Marni Yang, Shaun Gayle – the tragic love triangle that ended with Rhoni losing her life
Marni Yang was convicted in March 2011 of shooting Rhoni Reuter, the girlfriend of Shaun Gayle and her unborn baby death at her Illinois home. She is serving life behind bars now.
Prosecutors said Yang killed Reuter to eliminate her as a romantic rival. Reuter was shot several times, including having two shots aimed at her belly – and the unborn baby girl.
Gayle met Reuter at a charity basketball game in Iowa in 1990 and had dated her on and off until her death, but not exclusively. He had over a dozen sexual partners, but was also buying baby name books and looking forward to the birth of his child with Reuter, his longtime girlfriend.
During Yang’s trial, Shaun Gayle publicly admitted having a sexual relationship with Marni Yang, the woman charged with killing his pregnant girlfriend in 2007.
Gayle said he had sex with Yang the night before Reuter was killed and that Yang left his Chicago home about 9:30 p.m. that night. Gayle said he’d had sex with Yang about two or three times over the course of a year.
Gayle met Yang, a real estate agent at a Bears convention in 2005 at the Chicago Hilton and at first, their relationship started as a business relationship.
The relationship later became a sexual one and Gayle admitted that he had sex with Yang on the night before Reuter was shot and killed in her condo.
Marni Yang children:
Yang’s 20-year-old daughter Emily, during the trial, testified that her mother accessed Gayle’s email accounts and complained of the many women Gayle dated.
Prosecutors suggested Yang was obsessed with Gayle, hacked into his computer, located the names and emails of 17 girlfriends, and wrote them on an anonymous note to Reuter saying
“I think you would like to know what your boyfriend Shaun is doing with a lot of other women.”
Witnesses from Yang’s son’s football practice testified she would brag about writing the letter, composing it in broken English to suggest one of Gayle’s foreign girlfriends was responsible.
Yang came to focus her jealousy on Reuter upon finding out Reuter was pregnant, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors also said Yang used an elaborate scheme to cover her tracks during and after the murder, including wearing a disguise, building a home-made silencer and using a throw-away cell phone while planning and carrying out the crime.
