Video Released Of Deadly Shooting In Stillwater Bail Bond Office

Bail Agent Chasity Dawn Carey testified she shot her client in self-defense

Carey was arrested for murder at her home around 6:30 p.m. August 9, 2017 and charged with one count of first-degree murder. The video of the shooting was released by the Payne County District Attorney on Monday.

"They had a very hard time with the way the case was charged and could not find the element required in murder one of malice aforethought", defense attorney Emilie Kirkpatrick told The Oklahoman. "I have nothing but the highest praise for this jury". Prosecutors must prove that element to a jury for a first-degree murder conviction. "Just like everybody's reaction when they first saw it, there's pretty much no question just on her demeanor, her reactions and what her intent was".

Carey testified during her emotional trial that she shot Williams in self-defense as she and her 19-year-old son, Justin Henderson, attempted to take Williams back into custody and put him in handcuffs.

Prosecutors said Carey shot Williams after he was "no longer a threat".

Instead, Carey is happy to be reunited with her children and is now considering a career change.

'Yeah, actually you are, ' Carey says to him.

"District Attorneys across the State have the responsibility and ethical obligation to file charges based upon the evidence presented by an investigation and the law", Thomas wrote in an email to the News Press. A Manslaughter charge was not appropriate at the time of filing.

McIntyre said he is confident the jurors in the civil case will find Carey guilty.

"It is the jury's job to determine what facts are or are not important to them and render a verdict", the district attorney said. I am grateful for the service of each and every one of our jurors and do not and will not criticize their verdicts. I am proud of my staff and the excellent investigators at the Stillwater Police Department for their dedicated efforts in bringing this case to trial. Williams had been charged days earlier in the burglary case.

The shooting was captured on a GoPro camera that Carey's son had set up just before Williams' arrival at the bond office.

"Mom, you shot him", Carey's son said.

Carey said the shooting was out of self-defense and testified that Williams tried to grab her gun while attempting to make an arrest.

"I am very confident in this case that the jury's going to be unanimous in the finding that what she did, that in Oklahoma we do not allow Oklahoma to grab a gun and shoot somebody in the back that's trying to get away, that's made no aggressive moves towards you, that's just something we don't do here", he said. Defense attorneys contended Williams was just out of view of the camera. Carey is blocking the door and her son takes out handcuffs.

However, police said witness statements, evidence at the scene and video evidence contradict Carey's version of the event.
