Ex-NFL player Rae Carruth settles in Pennsylvania after prison

November 12, 2018

Former NFL player Rae Carruth, convicted of conspiring to kill his pregnant girlfriend, has resettled in Pennsylvania since his release from a North Carolina prison Monday.

Maria Finn, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, told the Charlotte Observer Wednesday that Carruth is under Pennsylvania supervision, though she said she could not say where in the state he is living.

Carruth, 44, spent nearly 19 years in prison.

The former Carolina Panther was convicted in January 2001 of conspiring to kill Cherica Adams, who was eight months pregnant, according to the Observer. She was shot four times in her car Nov. 16, 1999.

Carruth was found not guilty of first-degree murder.

Adams’s son, Chancellor Adams, survived. He will be 19 next month, the Observer reported.
