PLEASANTVILLE, Iowa -- (WHO) -- A Marion County father filed a wrongful death lawsuit in his wife's murder. Shirley Carter, 68, was found dead from a gunshot wound at her home in Lacona last June.
Bill Carter says he know who pulled the trigger: the defendant in the civil lawsuit and his youngest son, Jason Carter.
"I wouldn't have done this at all if I didn't know. I still love my youngest son. I do love him, but I have to have justice for Shirley. I have to," Bill Carter said. "I was really beginning to fear that we weren't going to have justice for her."
