Maintenance man convicted of murder gets maximum sentence
Bossier City, La (KMSS) — June 27, Robert Earl Walter of Shreveport was found guilty of killing his former supervisor, April Fulgham, just days after being fired.
Walter had been working at the Lexington Place Apartments in Bossier City as a maintenance worker, when Fulgham, the community manager, fired him.
In court, Walter didn't deny killing Fulgham, but said he never meant for it to happen. It took a jury only about an hour to convict him of second degree murder.
Tuesday morning, a judge announced Walter would serve the maximum sentence for that conviction; life in jail without the possibility of parole.
