After a Kentucky college student shot her ex-boyfriend, she proudly sang, “I killed him, I killed him” and jazzily danced inside a police interrogation room.
Shanya Hubers was convicted of murder in April for the October 2012 death of Ryan Poston. The Eastern Kentucky University student shot Poston — whom she had dated on and off for about a year — six times inside his Highland Heights apartment on the night he had a date with Miss Ohio.
Hubers, now 24 years old, will be sentenced on June 15.
Hubers, then 21, called 911 after the shooting and said she killed Poston in self-defense. She was taken into police custody — and then stunned officers with her increasingly erratic and bizarre behavior, ABC News’ 20/20 reported.
When left alone inside the police station, Hubers began to sing to herself and dance, officers said. She chanted, “I killed him, I killed him” during her integration room performance.
“This was one of the strangest things, when she was doing that dancing, snapping her fingers and twirling around, almost as if she was proud of it,” said Police Chief Bill Birkenhauer, who watched Hubers’ show from a feed.
When police asked what she had done, Hubers gave them a twisted answer.
“He’s very vain. One of our last conversations we had that was good was that he wants to get a nose job,” she said. “And I shot him right here. I gave him his nose job he wanted. I broke it.”
Then, she started to ask about life behind bars.“
If you go to jail are you allowed to keep your phone?” she asked “Can you shower there? Or do you just get really dirty?”
She continued: “I have to shower in front of people? Oh s--t.”
Hubers talked to herself for hours on end — even after the cops stopped asking questions.
"I don't know if anyone will ever want to marry me if they know that I killed a boyfriend in self-defense,” she said.
Then, she started to laugh. “Not funny,” she told herself.
The night before the shooting, the two had dinner with Poston’s family. At one point, the 29-year-old lawyer took his stepdad aside and told him he was going to finally end things with Hubers for good. The next night, he was going to have drinks with Audrey Bolte, Miss Ohio 2012, he said.
Earlier this year, Bolte testified that she was excited for the evening out with the young lawyer, but he never showed up for their 9:30 p.m. pool hall date.
A jury recommended a 40-year prison term with the possibility of parole after 20 years for Hubers. A judge will have final say in her punishment during the June 15 hearing.
Poston's ex-girlfriend Lauren Worley said the suggested 40-year term made her "sick to (her) stomach."
“If you kill someone, then you know, it’s eye for an eye. And what you do unto others should be done unto you,” Worley told ABC News. She dated Poston before he dated Hubers.
