Carter's mother says there's more to the story.

"I don't have no perfect children, but there's something else behind that story. He just don't go around doing stuff like this," said Gayle Carter. "But I do sympathize for the family, and they will be in my prayers."

Carter faced felonious assault and driving without a license charges before the murder charges were added Tuesday. Police say Carter also has a warrant for aggravated robbery out of Bowling Green.

In the courtroom Wednesday, Carter's bond was set at $1 million.

He will be back in court on Thursday, once he gets an attorney.
