‘If You Want to Kill Someone, We Are the Right Guys’

On a brisk day in March 2016, Stephen Allwine walked into a Wendy's in Minneapolis.

Stephen and Amy Allwine had met 24 years earlier at Ambassador University, a religious school in Big Sandy, Texas.

The couple adopted a son, bringing him home when he was just a couple of days old, and in 2011 they moved into a house in Cottage Grove, Minnesota, a centerless enclave of commuters and farmers in the Mississippi River Valley, not far from the Twin Cities.

Every year they traveled to join in the church's fall festival, which was held at different sites around the world.

“He will wait her at the airport, tail her with the stolen car, and when he has the chance will cause a car accident to kill her.” If the car accident didn't work out, he added, “the hitman will shoot her deadly.” Later he reminded dogdaygod to concoct an alibi: “Please make sure you are sorrounded [sic] by people most of the days, and spend some money to shop things on malls or public places where they have video surveillance.”

On a typical day, Stephen was not surrounded by people.
