A polygamist and two of his wives have been charged with the attempted murder of a 14-year-old girl who was due to testify against him for rape.
Raven Blackwing, 24, and a 19-year-old accomplice armed themselves with a knife, cellophane, matches, a screwdriver, syringes and Formalin - a chemical used to knock people out - before allegedly breaking into the girl's home in West Jordan, Utah in 2014.
Their 'shared husband' Kain Blackwing, who currently resides in Beaver County jail, forced his victims to call him 'Lord', and has since been convicted of rape of the 14-year-old girl.
Now, Blackwing and his third wife, Theresa Baker, 25, have been charged with orchestrating the home invasion and subsequent murder plot.
Baker also reportedly goes by the name Diana Blackwing.
They face charges of solicitation for aggravated murder, conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder, according to NY Daily News.
Raven Blackwing was sentenced serve up to 15 years in a Utah State Prison. The second woman, who cannot be named because she is a victim of sexual assault, was sentenced to a year of probation.
Kain was charged in 2015 with seven counts of rape, forcible sodomy and three counts of forcible sexual abuse against the accomplice who helped Raven Blackwing break into the girls home, KSL reported.
Kain reportedly met that woman when she was 17, and began a sexual relationship with her. He taught her 'survival skills', and allegedly told her he was a god and 'shen lord'. He also told her that 'if he ever bonded with a woman she became his and the only way out of the relationship was death'.
Kain will appear in court again for that case on .
It was revealed that Blackwing planned the attack with the two women for 11 weeks, during which time they conducted surveillance on the home.
They reportedly referred to the murder plot as ' playing a video game' and used code names for their targets such as 'Juggernaut,' 'Boss' and 'Guards.'
The 14-year-old girl was staying with her mother and mother's fiance at their home during the time of the break-in. It is believed that the fiance is related to Kain Blackwing.
The fiance was able to stop the attack when he awoke to hear the upstairs floor creaking just before , the Deseret News reported.
When he went to investigate, he came across two people dressed all in black who lunged at him and tried to grab his throat, according to charging documents.
'I heard a creak, and there was silence for about 30 seconds,' he told FOX News 13.
'I went to the bottom of the stairs and saw a couple of ninjas coming down. They were all dark gray or black, and they had black rubber gloves on and masks. All I could see was their eyes.'
He added: 'My adrenaline was pumping so bad. They grabbed for me and one of them covered my mouth, and the other grabbed my throat, but they were both pretty small so I threw them back and started shouting to get anybody awake that I could.'
Another man in the home heard the noise and went to help, but one of the assailants went for him with a stun gun. He was able to wrestle her and pinned her down until police arrived.
When cops reached the home, they also found one of the men holding Blackwing back with a samurai sword on the couch, according to the charges.
'I grabbed my sword on the mantle, unsheathed it and told her to sit down, that if she moved, she would lose body parts,' the man said.
The 14-year-old girl, who was asleep at the time, was set to testify against Kain Blackwing, just four days after the attack. Blackwing was charged with her rape in July of 2014.
Records show Kain Blackwing was also convicted of aggravated assault in 2005 and sex activity with a minor in 2010. His rap sheet also shows accusations of harboring a runaway in 2008.
