Jennifer Go through and her legal professional mentioned they produced the video of “Kyle Carruth’s capturing of her husband” and the affidavit to “speak for on their own.”
On Friday, November 5, Lubbock Law enforcement located Chad Read, 54, lifeless at a home in the 2100 block of 90th street.

When the video pans back again to Study, he is lying motionless on the porch.
KCBD has picked out to edit the movie to not clearly show Chad Read’s overall body soon after he was shot. The curse phrases have also been bleeped from the movie.
KCBD spoke to Kyle Carruth’s legal professional, David Guinn, who says the video clip “confirms the Lubbock Police’s comprehensive get the job done displays this as a justified homicide.”
“When a trespassing Chad Examine state-of-the-art on Mr. Carruth, who was standing inside of toes of the entrance door of his home and business, employees there, Mr. Read explained I’ll consider your gun and effing eliminate you with it and then tried out to. It was then and only then did that gun get pointed at Mr. Go through at the deadly instant,” Carruth’s legal professional stated. “Mr. Browse had just about every opportunity to depart, to consider to escalate the problem. He was threatening to other people. Police experienced been identified as and he realized that, Mr. Carruth came out the doorway, the gun pointed in the air and instructed him to depart. Most men and women would have.”
“Mr. Browse then chose to advance on Mr. Carruth, they ended up encounter to facial area,” Guinn continued. “Mr. Browse explained he’d acquire the gun and destroy him with it. The gun went off into the patio, that even now did not prevent Mr. Go through, who then grabbed the gun and tried using to kill Kyle.”
Guinn claims Carruth holds a valid protection beneath the Castle Doctrine, “to defend himself, other folks or his house,” and they are seeking ahead to the Attorney General’s Office investigating and presenting the case to a Lubbock grand jury. Guinn claims a grand jury could even now indict Carruth, but his hope is “upon mindful evaluate of the law, they will not,” but it does not signify he just can’t be arrested and billed or convicted later on.
“Everyone wishes there could have been an alternative option and it under no circumstances would have transpired. It’s influencing him much too,” Guinn stated. “You know, we’re contemplating about that very poor 11 calendar year old stepson. And he’s just a kid stuck in the backseat of Chad Read’s truck and Chad chose to drive out to the seven and a 50 percent acre home. You know, it’s however taking part in by means of Kyle’s thoughts. And that is not an simple memory for any individual, even if, just because it’s lawfully ideal, doesn’t suggest it’s not without psychological and realistic consequence.”
There have not been any rates filed or arrests manufactured in this scenario.
Jennifer Study, Chad’s widow, said the subsequent in the affidavit:
“The present situations of the kids will substantially impair the children’s physical wellbeing or emotional progress.
“I am the stepmother of the small children the subject matter of this go well with. The mom of the youngsters, Christina Study, has endangered the bodily wellness and psychological well-becoming of the kids by allowing them to be in the existence of the male that murdered their father, Chad Read. Chad Browse was assaulted by Kyle Carruth, and then murdered by Kyle Carruth, which Chad Go through was making an attempt to select a person of the children from Christina Read for his courtroom requested period of possession.
“Christina Read and Kyle Carruth have been engaged in an ongoing affair, despite Kyle Carruth getting married. On Oct 30, 2021, Chad Examine educated Christina Study that he had proof of her affair with Kyle Carruth and that he was heading to go community with it. On November 5, 2021, just after 4:00 p.m., myself and my small son had been bodily current when Chad Examine satisfied with Christina Examine at Kyle Carruth’s residence at 2100 90th St, Lubbock, Texas. We have been there to select up Chad’s youngest son. Chad was intended to have custody of the little one starting at 3:15pm, but Christina mentioned that, she “wanted to see him” as her excuse to why she had not manufactured the child as ordered by the court docket at the time expected.
“I consider that Christina Read and Kyle Carruth engaged in a conspiracy to assault and/or murder Chad that working day.
“The total conversation took put exterior of the home. Though Chad was inquiring about the area of the youngest son, Kyle Carruth went inside of the home. At the moment Kyle Carruth turned to go within, Christina Go through took numerous techniques back away from the doorway and immediately commenced recording what I think to be movie with her mobile phone.
“As Chad was declaring that he was getting ready to challenge subpoenas to convey every person into Court docket and expose the affair, Kyle Carruth emerged from the residence. When he emerged from the home, he experienced a new feeling of self-assurance brandishing a black rifle in a menacing method and screaming. Chad had not threatened any force, or made use of any force, against Kyle or Christina that would justify Kyle pulling a firearm on Chad. During this complete conversation, Chad Examine was absolutely unarmed.
“Kyle Carruth then pointed the firearm at Chad’s ft as Chad was little by little walking in excess of to where Kyle was and when they exchanged terms. Kyle Carruth then place the firearm to Chad’s side but with the muzzle outside of Chad’s back again. The barrel of Kyle Carruth’s firearm was wildly pointing in a number of directions, which include at me and at Christina Browse though he was bumping chests with Chad and whilst he was pushing Chad with his chest.
“Kyle Carruth then took a step backwards and fired a solitary shot at Chad’s ft. Kyle didn’t retain the barrel at Chad, but as an alternative stood back defiantly with the firearm pointed at the ground off to the aspect. After becoming fired on by Kyle Carruth, Chad attempted to defend himself by preserving the barrel of the firearm from remaining pointed at him. Kyle Carruth then ran away several actions from Chad, spun all-around, elevated the rifle, and fired two shots into Chad Browse.
“Immediately after shooting Chad, Kyle Carruth stood around Chad Read’s dying physique and wagged his finger at me and reported, “I told all of y’all to leave.” He did not say that Chad posed a menace to Christina or any other man or woman. He didn’t try to render any assist to Chad, he did not retain the barrel at Chad as even though he imagined Chad was a threat to him.
“I recorded the taking pictures on my cell cell phone. Through this full incident, I didn’t recognize that Kyle Carruth was holding and brandishing an precise firearm. At that time, I considered that it was some sort of stun-gun or paintball gun. Even when Kyle Carruth fired the photographs, the seem was very muffled and not as loud as I now firearms to be. It wasn’t until I obtained to Chad on the floor that I understood that he had in reality been shot and that the weapon held by Kyle Carruth was a firearm.
“During the assault and murder, Christina Browse was tranquil and didn’t act surprised. She acted as although she understood what the strategy was all together. She took no measures to stop Kyle Carruth from murdering Chad. subsequent the assault and murder, Christina Read through ongoing to continue to be calm, she did not respond, and she continued to file Chad as he laid there dying. Christina go through did not choose any methods to render help to Chad.
“On Monday next the murder, Choose Ann-Marie Carruth the then spouse of Kyle Carruth filed an affidavit in their divorce proceedings stating that, “[her] spouse, William Kyle Carruth, is under investigation for the capturing and killing of his girlfriend’s children’s father after he tried to decide on up his children…” She also stated in that affidavit that she was, “very worried about [Kyle Carruth’s] psychological condition.” I realized this information and facts from an post posted in the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal on November 19, 2021.
“Despite Kyle Carruth’s murder of Chad Read through, and his psychological point out, Christina Read through has ongoing to permit Kyle Carruth to be a aspect of these children’s lives. Christina Browse proceeds to retain a connection with Kyle Carruth. Christina Go through has continued to permit Kyle Carruth to have unsupervised possession of the youngest youngster from Lubbock County without the need of supervision, and they are presently in DeLeon, Texas in excess of 3.5 hours away.
“The kids are mindful that Kyle Carruth shot and killed their father in front of their mother, step-brother, and myself. Christina’s conclusion to let either of these kids to be in Kyle Carruth’s presence has triggered, and continues to bring about, significant impairment of their psychological well-getting. The oldest child has expressed to me that he blames his mother for the capturing, and that he will run absent from residence if he sees Kyle there once again.
“It is my perception that Kyle Carruth and Christina Go through intend to get married as quickly as possible, and will very likely move in collectively. I observed the divorce listening to among Kyle Carruth and Judge Anne-Marie Carruth. During that hearing, Kyle Carruth’s problem in excess of the “waiting period” for remarriage when instructed by the Decide. Kyle Carruth’s concern more than the means to remarry swiftly results in me to panic that he will have unfettered access to the little ones of the gentleman he murdered.
“It is in the ideal desire of the children to be taken off from Christina Browse, and that her speak to with the youngsters be denied or at the very least limited. [A child involved] is in excess of the age of 12, and will confer in chambers with the Courtroom to convey his wish to reside with me.
“Chad Browse and I lived jointly since November 2020. All through that time, the kids resided with us off and on around the year, which was better than six months. Although the children had been with us, I had actual treatment, command, and possession of the youngsters. Even prior to us relocating in alongside one another, I had substantial speak to with the little ones as Chad and I experienced been dating due to the fact April 2020.”
