UPDATE: There may be another reason why William Kelly shot his daughter’s boyfriend in the balls. Randall Carter is 29; Amanda Kelly is only 18. Dad couldn’t have been happy that his high-school age daughter was prancing around with a much older man…
When police in Navarre, Florida received a call for a noise complaint, they arrived to find a bleeding man running toward them along with his girlfriend. The man’s groin was dripping blood, and he was screaming that he’d been shot.
Amanda Kelly told a deputy that her dad, William Russell Kelly Jr., had shot her boyfriend Randall Carter at their home. The reason for dad’s ire, according to the younger Kelly: “He hates him, dude.”
William readily admitted to the shooting, but claims a different motive. He says he unloaded his .45 revolver, which he affectionately calls “The Judge,” because Carter was assaulting this daughter. “I shot him in the nuts with bird-shot because he was beating my daughter,” Kelly told police.
He’s been charged with aggravated battery. Carter, meanwhile, has already received his sentence for messing with an armed man’s daughter.
