Conway police have released video of the shooting outside the police department
that claimed a man's life. The suspected shooter is charged with first degree murder and is out on bond. The victim's girlfriend appeared in court as well.
Deranda Carter is devastated by all of this. She watched the man she loves get shot and killed. Now she can't believe the man accused of killing him is out of jail. Police released video of the shooting, which is included in this article. It may be disturbing to some people.
Video from a camera mounted on the Conway Police Department captured the shooting of Chris Childress from beginning to end. It shows Childress get out of the car at the police department to confront Cortez Waller.
Cortez starts shooting and then turns himself into police. Childress' girlfriend, Deranda Carter and their three children, watched it happen. She admits she had an affair with Waller and Childress followed him to confront him.
"Just to confront him, he didn't have no weapon or anything," says Carter.
Monday Carter showed up to court for a hearing in the case and learned Waller had already been released on a bond $22,500.
"Now they let a murderer out on bond, a cheap bond," says Carter.
With Waller out of jail, Carter fears for her life but says she will fight hard to get the man who killed her fiance and the father of her children back behind bars.
"I'm going to be here every time they come to court. I loved him and I didn't want anything to happen to him," says Carter.
Waller was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault. Waller could face 10-40 years in prison on the murder charge, and up to six years for assault.
