No Bond for Woman Facing Charges Related to King Carter Shooting

The mother of one of the teens accused in the murder of 6-year-old King Carter appeared in court Monday as she faces charges related to the case.

Tameka Thompson, 41, was ordered held without bond during her appearance in a Miami-Dade courtroom.

Thompson was charged with tampering with physical evidence after detectives say she paid an acquaintance $50 to get rid of a black Lexus that was full of bullet holes from the shootout that killed Carter in February. Police found the car in a junkyard.

Detectives say Leonard Adams, Irwen Pressley and Tamar Teems got into a shootout with a rival. The 6-year-old victim was outside the apartment complex where he lived and was caught in the crossfire.

Thompson is Adams' mother.

The senseless death angered the community and many held vigils and marched in Carter's memory.
