Suspect kills believed to be having affair with his wife
On October 14, 2010, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department detectives arrested 28-year-old Sacramento-resident Darrell Eugene Carter on suspicion for the recent shooting death of 35-year-old Richard Lovett. Carter was located at a relative’s apartment in the 3600 block of Data Drive.
According the sheriff's department reports, on October 9, 2010, at 7:17 p.m., deputies responded to an apartment complex located in the 8700 block of Fair Oaks Boulevard regarding the report of a shooting. Responding deputies located Lovett lying in the parking lot of the complex and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced him dead at the scene a short time later.
Witnesses said they heard an argument followed by the sound of multiple gunshots. Witnesses then saw the victim collapse in the parking lot and someone described only as a Black male dressed in dark clothing get into a vehicle and drive away.
Detectives now believe Carter confronted Lovett because Lovett was involved in a romantic relationship with Carter’s wife. The confrontation led to the argument and the shooting.
Carter was booked into the county jail on the charge of murder and for violating his parole; he is ineligible for bail. The suspect is scheduled to be arraigned on October 18, 2010, at 1:30 p.m., in Department 63.
