MIDLAND - $300 a month per child is how much Arron Castillo was ordered to pay Kyara West. The amount was decided when Castillo and West went to a child support hearing on Wednesday morning. By 12:45 a.m. on Thursday, West would be dead. According to the affidavit, she was shot in the head and chest at the Midland Village apartments.

"She was shot, execution style. It was pretty bad," One resident told NewsWest 9, adding that neither West nor Castillo lived in the complex. "We just don't have anything happen like this in this complex, it's very safe."

The affidavit stated West's mother said her daughter called her 30 minutes prior to let her know she was going to meet Castillo because he wanted to give her money. According to police, West's phone records showed she got two blocked calls which Castillo later admitted were from him.

The police report also shows Castillo was arrested at a home in Midland on Thursday morning.

21-year-old Carlos Martinez was also arrested on Thursday afternoon and charged with tampering with evidence.

NewsWest 9 found Castillo's Twitter account and in his bio he says he, "loves women to the fullest," and back in September he tweeted about the love he had for his woman, using a choice word to describe a woman.

On Kyara's Facebook, a picture of Castillo with the caption: "This is my baby daddy Arron Castillo and I love my baby daddy."

West and Castillo had not one, but two young boys together; a three year old and a 15 month old.
