    Triggerman talks about Carruth case

    TAMPA, FL -- The brother of former Carolina Panther Rae Carruth's hired hit man has been arrested after a deadly shooting rampage in Tampa.

    Police have charged 33-year-old Andre Watkins with killing a woman, and wounding two men on Friday. They arrested him after a huge manhunt.

    During a news conference Monday, Watkins' attorney confirmed that his brother is Van Brett Watkins who is in prison for shooting and killing Cherica Adams in 1999. She was the pregnant girlfriend Carruth.

    For those wondering about how Cherica's son is doing this is a link to a heartfelt interview with his grandmother who has raised him. Watkins is also interviewed from prison.

    From September 2012:

    Andre Watkins, known in the Plantation subdivision of Carrollwood as "the crazy man" who angrily paced his front yard, stared daggers and sometimes brandished a gun, was given life in prison Thursday for a 2010 rampage that left two men wounded and a young woman dead.

    In pleading guilty to first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder, Watkins, 55, avoided a death penalty trial...

    In addition to the life sentences for murder and attempted murder, Judge Fernandez also imposed life sentences for kidnapping and armed burglary of a dwelling.
