A Fort Worth man killed his pregnant girlfriend, her mother, her 10-year-old brother, and dog before turning himself in to the police.
An hour after brutally shooting 21-year-old Chanice Reed, 39-year-old Annette Carroll Reed, and 10-year-old Eddie McCuin, Amos Wells walked into the police station and told them that he did something bad.
Police Sgt. Joe Loughman believes that Wells shot the family after a big argument between the mother and daughter. However, he has no idea why he went after the 10-year-old boy.
Reed’s cousin, Monique Myers, said that Wells didn’t have a heart if he could kill an innocent kid like that. “How could you? How could you take away innocent lives like that?”
Myers is still trying to understand what prompted the murder. “How could you do something like that to a person you so-call love and you’ve been with for so long? How could you do a hateful crime like this? It just don’t add up.”
“I know time heals wounds, and I know my family is strong,” Myers added. “I know we can get through it but it’s so hard to grasp that this is real when you just spent an awesome weekend with your whole family together, laughing and having a good time, and then two days later, you get a phone call.”
This isn’t the first time Wells has been violent. In 2008, he was sentenced to a year of probation for assault with bodily injury. In 2011, he was sentenced to 15 days in jail for choking a former girlfriend. She filed a protective order against him and said that he had a major anger problem.
“I feel the next time Amos get a hold of me, I won’t be alive,” she stated.
Wells is currently being held on $2 million bail for killing his pregnant girlfriend and her family.
