Widow Of Man Killed In Dispute With Ex-Wife’s Boyfriend Slams Justice System: “It’s Very Unfair”


The widow of a man who was shot dead in a headline-making incident caught on camera last November is speaking to Inside Edition and says she is “devastated.”

Jennifer Read says “I feel like a shell of the person I once was”Chad, Chad’s husband, was gunned down just two months after their marriage.

She filmed the video of the altercation between her husband Kyle Carruth (the man who reportedly shot the gun that killed her husband) and she did so in Lubbock.

She claimed she was in “complete shock” “couldn’t believe it,” adding, “I honestly thought it was like a BB gun, it was so quiet when he first shot it.”

“I was thinking in my mind, get up, Chad,”She continued.

Chad’s shooter was his ex-wife’s boyfriend. The victim was looking for his son who he thought was at Carruth’s home.

“He wasn’t mad, he was frustrated,”His widow stated.

Things escalated when Carruth allegedly left the house with a gun and the men got in each others faces.

Carruth fired into a ground, and after a fight, he allegedly opened fire again killing Chad.

Carruth was found to be acting in self-defense by a grand jury and will not face criminal charges.

Chad’s widow says it is “very unfair” when asked how she feels about the grand jury’s decision.

“I didn’t realize the justice system operated this way,”She continued.

Tony Buzbee, her attorney, told Inside Edition. “we’re all sitting here thinking the entire system has failed this family.”

Jennifer Read said she would love to tell Carruth. “I’d like to say I forgive him but I’m still working on that. I just would hope that there would be some remorse, not only did I lose my husband, three children lost their father.”

“I loved Chad with all my heart,”She spoke.
