This website was created for the public, to track the court proceedings, of the alleged suspect, James Mitchell Carter, in the brutal murder of Kimberly Dawn Carter on February 19, 2013

In the early morning hours of February 19, 2013 Kim and her companion, were awakened by a large male standing in her bedroom doorway. This person appeared to be that of her estranged husband James Mitchell Carter.  As Kim yelled “Mitchell, NO” Mr. Carter rushed into the bedroom attacking her companion. Before he made it to the bed Kim’s companion had just enough time to shove her out of the bed and tell her to leave the house and call 911.  The two males continued to fight after Kim left the room.  Once her companion escaped from Mr. Carter, he went outside to find Kim.  When he was unable to locate her he went to a neighboring house, which had their lights on, and called 911.  No one knows for sure where Kim was during this time but the assumption is she went upstairs to protect her sleeping daughter.  When officers arrived they located Kim in her back yard.  Kim was badly beaten, had severe head trauma, and was unresponsive.  She was pronounced dead on scene. Mr. Carter was not present when law enforcement arrived.


Kim was so much more than a victim; she was a mother, daughter, sister, girlfriend, sister-in-law, aunt, best friend, nurse and more.  Kim was taken away from her five beautiful daughters and a grandchild she will never get to meet.  What this man took can never be replaced.  Our Goal is to make people aware and to ensure that he is punished to the full extent of the Law.

*James Mitchell Carter is innocent until proven guilty and all assumptions are alleged*
