Rae Carruth

In 1999, former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Rae Carruth was convicted of arranging the death of his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams. In a 911 call, Adams said that Carruth stopped his car in front of her vehicle as another car pulled alongside. She said the passenger inside the vehicle shot her before both cars drove away. Adams died one month later, and after going on the run briefly, Carruth was nabbed by authorities in Tennessee. He is currently serving an 18- to 24-year-sentence and is tentatively scheduled for release in October 2018. (Photo: Craig Jones/Getty Images)
