Steak 'n Shake worker shot to death during attempted robbery in Charlotte Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief says a fast-food restaurant worker was killed and the suspect was wounded in a shooting during an attempted robbery. Kerr Putney told reporters the worker was shot inside the Steak 'n Shake restaurant south of downtown Charlotte on Tuesday. Putney said a customer also was wounded. The chief says Pineville police officers responding to the scene encountered the suspect and exchanged gunfire with him in the parking lot and wounded him. He said no officers were hurt, and added that a gun believed to belong to the suspect was recovered. Pineville is located just south of Charlotte.

Jailed financier Epstein seeks to be released under house arrest

Jailed financier Epstein seeks to be released under house arrest American financier Jeffrey Epstein on Thursday asked a federal judge to let him out of jail and allow him to remain under house arrest as he awaits trial on charges of sex trafficking underage girls.

Police records identify more than two dozen people accused of killing, or trying to kill others, who have been allowed to wear ankle bracelets leading up to their trials.

"It makes me furious to hear that stat," Charlotte City Councilman Tariq Bokhari said when we shared our discovery with him. It's just unacceptable and we should no longer accept anymore this broken criminal justice system that we have."

As the number of murders in Charlotte continues to go up, we wanted to know who's walking among us with an ankle bracelet, so we requested a list of every defendant, all 400 of them, and not only found accused murderers, but people charged with rape, burglary and other violent crimes.

Police records show there were 22 defendants charged with murder, two charged with attempted murder and two charged with voluntary manslaughter on a day last week.

CMPD Chief Kerr Putney has said the court's reliance on ankle bracelets have contributed to the growing violence in Charlotte.

"There's no accountability," he said last month. "If you all have is a monitor, at least I can tell you were there, so it's easier for us to build a case. It does not prevent you from continuing your criminality. That's our issue."

In addition to accused murderers wearing ankle bracelets, records show more than 60 people charged with burglary, another 60 accused of assault, 34 with gun charges and 12 accused of sex crimes, according to CMPD records. Those numbers do not include the more than 100 facing robbery charges.

The program is far from fool proof. Police have said just this year alone, at least 15 people have committed new crimes while wearing ankle bracelets, many of them cutting off their electronic monitoring devices and then forcing police to go searching for them.

As the criticism mounts, Senior Resident Superior Court Judge W. Robert Bell told us each release decision is based on the facts of the case and an assessment that determines the likelihood of that person committing a new crime or failing to show up to court.

"As you know, a Superior Court Judge cannot comment on the specifics of any pending case," Judge Bell said in a statement. "Each of those 26 people made a bond and as a condition of the release were also placed on electronic monitoring. Some of those are on 24 hours house arrest while others are allowed to work if they have provided proof of a job and a work schedule.
