KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A Kansas City woman who admits shooting and killing her husband may serve just four months in jail after a Jackson County judge sentenced Charleatha Nevins to what’s called “shock time”.
Judge John Torrence sentenced her to 120 days in the Jackson County Detention Center. Nevins was 28 when she shot her 25-year old husband Eric Nevins on February 13, 2012. The two had been arguing about a credit card when she shot him in the 3400 block of Forest Avenue.
“She knew what she was doing. She had every intent to shoot him,” said Taloni Miller, the victim’s sister.
Miller is furious with the sentence. She says her former sister-in-law got a slap on the wrist.
“I wish someone would make sense out of it for me ’cause I can’t make sense out of it.”
