Bossier Parish jury finds fired worker guilty of 2nd degree murder

Posted: Updated:

A Bossier Parish jury finds a Shreveport man guilty of second degree murder in the shooting death of a Bossier City Apartment manager.

It took the jury just over an hour to find Robert Earl Walter guilty in the deadly shooting of 32-year-old April Fulghum, manager of the Lexington Place Apartment.

It happened October 10, 2012.

 Shortly after the murder, Robert Walter turned himself in to Shreveport police.

Walter was fired from his job as a maintenance worker prior to the shooting.

During a recorded statement, Walter said that on the day he was fired he left the property to go home to retrieve his uniforms that Fairfield Property Management had requested he bring back. When he returned to Lexington Place a short time later he says "that's when I shot the manager."

Walter faces life in prison. Sentencing is set for July 9th.
