CLINTON, N.C. (FOX 46 WJZY) - On the heels of a Carolina Panthers win against the Philadelphia Eagles, former Panthers player, Ray Carruth, will be released from prison.
He's expected to leave Sampson Correctional Institution in Clinton, NC on Monday anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
He was convicted in 2001 for orchestrating the death of Cherica Adams who was pregnant with his son.
Adams died, but their son, Chancellor Lee, who is almost 19 years old lived.
Adams was shot several times by a hitman causing the baby to be born prematurely and suffer from permanent brain damage.
Carruth was suspended from the NFL in December of 1999 following his arrest.
He has spent nearly two decades behind bars.
