Rae Carruth is gearing up to be released from prison after being convicted of killing his former girlfriend and injuring his unborn child.

After 17 years, Carruth, finally admitted to being the responsible party in the death of Cherica Adams back in 1999. The unborn child is now 18 years old, Chancellor Lee Adams who was stricken with cerebral palsy from birth as a result of his mother’s gunshot wounds.

At the time Carruth was a professional football player with the Carolina Panthers, he felt his then girlfriend intentionally got pregnant to entrap him financially and retaliated having her shot four times. The former wide receiver slowed in front of Adams allowing the gunman to pull alongside her and fire into her vehicle.

In a recent interview Carruth expressed and interest in becoming the caretaker for his young son who was inside his mothers pregnant belly during the shooting. Her mother Saundra Adams the young boys grandmother and Cherica’s mother told a local newspaper that he would never get custody of the boy but she was pleased that he finally admitted responsibility for her daughter’s death.

The former footballer was convicted in 2001 for orchestrating a murder conspiracy, hiring Van Brett Watkins to shoot and kill Adams who was seven months pregnant.

He is scheduled to be released on 22 October 2018.
