A murder suspect’s mother talks about the pain her family is going through. Ted Mueller Jr and Christopher Bell are charged with the murder of 24 year old Cedric Watt. Police believe the suspects planned to rob him. Eyewitness News Exclusive, Tabnie Dozier sits down with Mueller’s mom. We talked with Watt’s Stepdad and now Mueller’s mom, Shannon Miller is opening up. She’s also the soon to be mother in law of Christopher Bell. She reached out to us, asking if we can share her remorse to Watt’s family. Miller says every time she closes her eyes she sees Watt. But she’s standing by her son, TJ. What police says was at the scene, a gunshot wound to Watt’s back. Miller says no one wins, Bell and Mueller Jr each have two kids and one on the way. This murder case is tearing her family apart. Her daughter is engaged to Bell and police say she was with the men when the crime happened. Innocent or guilty, a mother’s heart is in pieces and the ultimate decision is now up to the justice system. The crime scene has an ironic connection to another high profile murder. We’ve learned that Christopher Bell’s sister is the pregnant girlfriend of Brandon Draper. Draper’s burned body was found in Hopkins County earlier this month, with a crime scene connection here in Evansville. No arrests have been made in that case.
