Amos Wells was arrested and held on $2 million bond after he turned himself in. While locked behind bars, Wells spoke to NBC 5 and was visibly upset when he was asked about the death of his girlfriend and her family. Amos Wells told the NBC reporter that he didn’t want to talk about what happened on that fateful day, but was apologetic about their deaths. “No one deserved what happened. It shouldn’t happen. It should never even have happened. I just want, even if the family don’t want it, I just want to tell them that I’m praying for them,” Wells said through tears.
One of Chanice Reed’s cousin Monique Myers said, “She told me he was controlling. He didn’t like her being with her own family. I talked to her and said, ‘Chanice, leave him.’ You love a person, you’re not supposed to hurt them. That’s not the way, just not the way. He just shot her point blank, because she was in the door, went into the room and shot my cousin, Eddie, three times,” Myers said. “You’re going to have a child yourself. For you to kill the mom, mother of your child, her brother — you don’t have a heart. It’s going to be a cold day in hell.”
