The mother of 20-year-old Anthony Green said she is thankful the second suspect in her son’s murder is behind bars.
David Parkerson turned himself in at the Jefferson County jail around 8 a.m. Monday.
He and Desmond Bennett are charged with murder in the shooting death of Anthony Green.
The shooting happened Dec. 28 at a car wash located in the 3000 block of Washington.
Green’s mother Tracie Blackshire said her son was very close with Parkerson. She said a few days before he was killed Green spent Christmas with Parkerson and his little girl who is Anthony’s god-child.
"He was like your brother and you stand there and watch or whatever part you played in it how could you,” said Blackshire.
Bennett was arrested on Feb. 6 and remains held on a $1 million bond. Parkerson’s bond is set at $1 million dollars as well.
"Very angry, I'm angry, I’m hurt, all of the above…especially more angry because of someone that he knew," said Blackshire.
Blackshire watched the video of when Bennett was arrested and said he showed no remorse.
She said the hardest part is knowing she spoke to her son on the phone 30 minutes before he was killed.
To keep his memory alive she looks at pictures of her son and remembers all the good times they shared.
“I would just tell him how much I love him,” said Blackshire.
12 news reached out to Parkerson's attorney Audwin Samuel. He did not make a comment or release a statement at this time.
