\”Where\’s my son at? I\’ll go get him. I\’m supposed to have him at 3:15,\” Chad Read is heard telling Christina Read. \”And you\’re playing games telling me that I can pick him up at six? I\’ve already got the cops on the way to your mom\’s house… Because that\’s probably where he is.\”

According to widow Jennifer Read, Carruth was angry that Read threatened to expose his extramarital affair to his wife, Judge Ann-Marie Carruth whose jurisdiction is the 72nd District Court in Crosby and Lubbock counties.
