LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The family of a Louisville man they say was killed during a fight is speaking out to WDRB after a judge sent the alleged murder suspect to home confinement and not back to jail.
Nancy Rego and her family are seeking justice after they say their family member, David Bray, died from blunt force trauma after a fight with 37-year-old Reginald Carr outside a Walgreens near Algonquin Parkway and Winkler Ave.
“He’s out here walking the street and my brother is dead – there ain’t nothing right about that,” Rego said.
Reginald Carr appeared in front of a Judge on Friday after being arrested for the murder on Thursday.
The Judge decided to put Carr on home confinement and work release until his next court appearance later this month because of long time frame between the alleged assault in November and Carr’s arrest on Thursday.
Bray’s family says they’re upset the man they say killed their loved one is not behind bars.
“It’s just so disheartening to think that this man obviously has priors and he still able to be just out on the street,” Bray's niece Megan Prather said.
Bray’s family says he was homeless and battled drugs for nearly a decade.
“My brother didn’t hurt nobody. He didn’t weigh but maybe 115 pounds and this man weighed 300 pounds and kicked him to death!” Rego said, wiping away tears.
Carr will appear back in court Feb. 20.
