Pro career

Lane was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Panthers before the 1997 NFL season. He set a then-team record that year with a 147 rushing yard performance. During his three years with the Panthers, he accumulated 2,001 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns.

Death

In the American common law legal system, a grand jury is a type of jury which determines if there is enough evidence for a trial. ...


Deidra pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter. She claimed that Fred emotionally and physically abused her; however, the judge ruled that the shooting was premeditated and that she deliberately shot Fred twice, even though the first shot rendered him helpless. The judge determined that those factors outweighed the alleged abuse and gave her the maximum sentence. [1] It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into manslaughter. ...
