Rae Carruth’s disabled son, 17, will confront the NFL star when he’s released from prison
Rae Carruth will face the child he tried to kill when he is finally freed from prison in 2018.
Carruth, a former wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers, is nearing the end of his sentence for the 1999 murder of Cherica Adams, who was pregnant with his son Chancellor Lee Adams at the time.
Now 17, Chancellor will be waiting outside the North Carolina prison where the father he has only ever met once is being held.
Chancellor has grown up with his grandmother Saundra Adams, who has raised him since the death of his mother.
Carruth wanted Cherica Adams to have an abortion when he found out she was pregnant with their child, but she refused.
That’s when Carruth is said to have hired a man to kill her.
Cherica was shot four times while eight months pregnant. All four bullets missed Chancellor but as Adams lost blood, the child sustained permanent brain damage.
