The state of Oklahoma is divided over shocking video that shows a female bail bondsman gun down a client right in front of her son — as she's now walked free from first-degree murder charges!
This following video begins when the son of Chasity Dawn Carey sets up a camera before the woman sits down with burglary suspect Brandon James Williams in her Stillwater office. Her plan is to take the man into custody after he puts on handcuffs. Instead, she's seen pulling the trigger and killing Williams — as her 19-year-old son, Justin Henderson, says: "Mom, you just shot him!"
Williams is off-camera when the trigger is pulled at 4:05 in this troubling footage — but prosecutors seeking a murder conviction for the Aug. 2017 shooting say that he was attempting to escape through a window, and was shot in the back. Carey, however, insisted that the shooting seen here was in self-defense!
"I was scared," she told jurors — adding: "I'm not used to being in violent situations, like at all." The jury agreed, with the footage being released after Carey was found not guilty on March 5, 2018. Jill Tontz, who's a candidate for District Attorney in the county, blasted the DA office for not filing manslaughter charges. "It's the intent behind the murder," she said, "as to how you charge that crime."
