20-year-old India Mackey was murdered by her 18-year-old boyfriend, Kevin Dixon on November 19.

Dixon will stand trial and faces charges of first-degree murder, though the jury will likely find the case pretty open and shut.

In the moments leading up to her death, Mackey recorded a cell phone video of her point of view.

*WARNING: news video describes an act of domestic violence and murder

The video is truly chilling.

Dixon calmly loaded a gun and wiping off his fingerprints, making sure to give Mackey a good look at the bullet he claims will kill her.

“You think I’m motherf***ing playing, huh.”

A little while later, Dixon was pulled over by police for driving erratically.

The authorities found Mackey deceased in the passenger seat.

According to The Root, Dixon was charged with “first-degree murder, carrying a concealed weapon, and felony firearm charges.”

His mother also faces felony charges for tampering with the murder weapon at the request of her son.

WXYZ reporter Andrea Isom said as she was covering the story:

“I’ve been doing this job for a very long time. We’ve seen a lot but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this.”

Huffpost reported in April that nearly half of all murdered women are killed at the hands of their partners.

Researchers point to an increase in gun violence as one driver of that startling statistic.
