(JoplinGlobe.com) — A Nevada (MO) woman’s hiring of two armed men to help her kidnap her 1-year-old daughter turned into a badly bungled crime in which the girl and her father were fortunate to escape being shot, according to Joplin police.Click to see original Image in a new window

Lt. Brian Lewis said Elise D. Deboutez, 27, is believed to have recruited Joplin residents Ron N. King, 21, and Tayvon D. Smith, 22, to assist her in abducting her daughter from the girl’s custodial parent, Christopher “Chad” Hamilton, 38.

The plot played out Saturday night inside Hamilton’s home at 1406 W. Fifth St. He told police that he was in a bedroom with his daughter about 7 p.m. when he heard someone else inside the home and called out the name of an acquaintance whom he thought it might be.

Realizing that the voice that answered did not belong to the acquaintance, he shut the bedroom door and heard shots fired.

More than one shot penetrated a wall into the bedroom where Hamilton was hiding with his daughter. Fortunately, Lewis said, neither the father nor the daughter was injured. The intruders fled the scene without the girl and were gone when police arrived moments later, he said.

Investigators later arrested each of the suspects at other locations. Smith, who was on probation for burglary and robbery convictions, reportedly was stopped near 26th and Main streets in alleged possession of two bags containing a total of 8 grams of marijuana, some scales and more than $1,000 in cash.

He was charged with possession of drugs with intent to deliver and remained in custody Wednesday pending a probation revocation hearing.

Under questioning after their arrests, Deboutez and King reportedly confessed to the kidnapping plot, according to a probable-cause affidavit filed with charges Wednesday in Jasper County Circuit Court.

Deboutez reportedly told a detective that she met with Smith and King on Thursday and hired them to kidnap her daughter. They went to Hamilton’s home together in a vehicle and parked nearby. The two men got out while she drove away with the intention of coming back to pick them up.

King reportedly told investigators that he and Smith forced open two doors to gain entry to the residence. Both were carrying handguns, the affidavit states. King told police that Smith fired the shots inside the house. He had tried to shoot at the bedroom, too, he said, but his gun wasn’t functioning properly. They left when they became concerned that Hamilton might have armed himself, the affidavit states.

As of Wednesday night, Deboutez remained in custody on charges of first-degree burglary and armed criminal action. King was facing single counts of burglary and attempted child kidnapping, two counts of first-degree assault, and four counts of armed criminal action.

Smith faced only the drug charge, but police indicated that other charges were pending against him and that other counts could be filed against Deboutez.

Police Cpl. Chuck Niess said Deboutez is believed to have offered compensation to King and Smith for their assistance. But he declined to explain what the compensation was to have been.
