Balaclava-clad middle schoolers stab Wyoming 14-year-old to death at mall while he was protecting his girlfriend

The two teenage suspects face serious charges as adults, including felonious conspiracy to commit murder, felonious aggravated assault and battery, and misdemeanor theft.


A Wyoming teenager who was attempting to protect his girlfriend was tragically stabbed to death at a mall.

The incident occurred when 14-year-old Ronter Dean Maher and one of his friends went to Eastridge Mall in Casper, Wyoming after receiving a call from his girlfriend saying her group of friends were being followed by two individuals at the mall wearing hooded, balaclava-style masks.

According to the Daily Mail, Maher and his friend rushed to the scene to assist Maher's girlfriend and her friends, intending to ensure their safety. However, a confrontation ensued between Maher and the two teenagers, identified as Dominique Antonio Richard Harris and Jarreth Joseflee Sebastian Plunkett, both aged 15.

Witnesses describe the moment the confrontation turned physical after Maher reportedly urged the attackers to leave. Plunkett allegedly pulled out a stolen kitchen knife, to which Maher said “Put the knife away, this isn’t fair.” Plunkett then responded “I don’t fight fair,” stabbing Maher twice.

Following the incident, Harris and Plunkett were swiftly apprehended by law enforcement. They now face serious charges as adults, including felonious conspiracy to commit murder, felonious aggravated assault and battery, and misdemeanor theft.

According to police interviews, Maher had a previous encounter with the two suspects at a park, where he called them “freaks.”

Maher's friend told police that he did not know the attackers' last names, but that they all went to Dean Middle School together. He said that Harris slammed Maher to the group, with Plunkett walking up and stabbing Maher.

The tragic loss of Robert Dean Maher has sent shockwaves through the community, prompting an outpouring of grief and calls for justice. 

Maher’s father posted on Facebook, “Bobby Rest in Peace my baby I miss you so much Daddy was so proud of you and loved you so much so very much!”

“We are so devastated nothing can bring you back we love you Bobby my neeners my jr you will never be forgotten! I am dying inside and out right now and will be forever," he continued.
