Kim Weibring, a mother of two, said she gave the suspects what they wanted and they shot her anyway.



Weibring underwent several surgeries to repair a shattered vertebra, and a bullet was lodged against her spinal cord.

A juvenile has also been charged in the case and a third suspect died in an unrelated incident, authorities said.

McGee is behind bars at the Kane County jail. His next court date is set for May 7.
