Carli Reed allegedly shot and killed her husband, trial continues
PHILIPPI, W.Va (WDTV) - Thursday marked the second day of Carli Reed’s trial. Reed is accused of allegedly shooting her then husband, Marcus Fagons, in August of 2019.
Reed used to work for the FBI and Fagons was a corrections officer at the Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
On the day Fagons was shot, Reed allegedly told the state trooper who questioned her that she was the one who shot her husband. She also told officers that she and Fagons got into an argument prior, according to the original complaint.
The discussion in court on Thursday involved her potential motive for allegedly shooting her husband, which lawyers related to her medical records. Her records state that she has had suicidal thoughts and could potentially hurt herself or her husband prior to the incident. In court, it was discovered that Reed considered Fagons to be mentally abusive.
The goal of Thursday’s trial seemed to be to set the scene for the jury, giving them a clear understanding of what happened last year.
Reed’s parents and law enforcement who responded to the scene back on Aug. 15, 2019 spoke about the incident.
Reed was very emotional throughout the trial as evidence was being shown.
The trial will continue tomorrow and is ongoing. WDTV will continue to post updates.
