Shayna Hubers, the Lexington woman who shot and killed her attorney boyfriend, 29-year-old Ryan Carter Poston, and then sang and danced in a police interrogation room after the murder, will have her case documented on a new episode of 48 Hours on CBS. This Saturday’s episode is entitled “Obsessed,” and it tells the story of a pretty grad student whose life spins out of control and leaves a handsome attorney with a promising future dead. The case will be outlined by police investigators and the prosecutor in the case. For the murder of Ryan Poston, Shayna Hubers received a sentence of 40 years in prison.
It was October 2012, when the police were dispatched to a Highland Heights condominium. They had been contacted by a 21-year-old woman named Shayna Hubers, who stated that she killed her boyfriend in self-defense. Sure enough, when police stepped into the two-bedroom apartment, they found the body of a white male slumped on the floor under his dining room table. An autopsy report would later determine that Ryan Poston had died of multiple gunshot wounds to the body. According to WCPO, a neighbor made the following statement.
“She hadn’t been in there but for just a few seconds and we heard two shots at the beginning,” said Doris West. “I thought they were firecrackers, but I learned later they were not. And then there was four more shots like boom, boom, boom, boom.”
Ryan Poston’s murder was no mystery, since the woman who had done it had willingly confessed. The case against Shayna Hubers made national headlines as everyone became fascinated with this young killer who just couldn’t stop talking about what she’d done. But what was more shocking than the murder were the statements she made after the killing in the interrogation room. According to ABC News, Shayna Hubers told investigators that she gave Ryan the nose job he always wanted.
“He’s very vain. One of our last conversations we had that was good was that he wants to get a nose job. And I shot him right here. I gave him his nose job he wanted. I broke it.”
The infamous police interrogation videos circulated all through the media and online, showing Shayna Hubers dancing ballet and singing “Amazing Grace” while investigators were out of the room. In a cold-hearted fashion, she also snapped her fingers and boasted, “I did it. Yes, I did.”
During the interview with detectives, CBS 48 Hours will show that Shayna Hubers stated that she was at Ryan Poston’s apartment when the two began arguing, and that Ryan Poston began talking down to her about her mother and the rest of her family by calling them hillbillies. The arguing escalated to physical violence when Ryan began picking her up and throwing her around the room. After he banged her head and pulled her hair, Shayna grabbed Poston’s gun and shot him, she states in the video.
As Ryan Poston was dying, he made twitching movements, which prompted Shayna to put him out of his misery by firing several more shots. She failed to contact 911 immediately, and by the time she did, it was too late.
Prosecutors say that Shayna Hubers wanted to kill Ryan because she knew that he was dating other women and was ready to move on without her.
Probably one key mistake that Ryan made, among many, was that he continued to see Shayna. He told friends that he wanted to break up with her, and that she was driving him insane, yet he continued a sexual relationship with her and posed with her for Instagram pictures.
On the night of the murder, Ryan Poston was supposed to meet another beautiful woman, former Miss Ohio 2012 Audrey Bolte, for a night of fun. When he didn’t show up, Bolte believed that Ryan had stood her up, 48 Hours will show.
After a jury found Shayna Hubers guilty, Ryan’s family stated that they were satisfied that she was convicted, but that the conviction was bittersweet since their son was still dead. They also made it known that Ryan didn’t deserve to be shot dead in his own home that Friday night.
Ryan Poston was a charismatic ladies man who many say was not only handsome but highly intelligent as well. With his keen knowledge of guns, women felt that Ryan was a strong man who could easily protect them. Even men enjoyed the stimulating conversations with him about guns, politics, and more.
