Testify

Charles Smith, the 51-year-old former cop who killed his girlfriend's husband, doesn't want to testify against her.

Smith pleaded guilty in June, saying he ambushed, shot and killed Donald Ray Skinner, because he loved the man's wife, Carolyn Allene Skinner, and because she wanted him to do it.

Smith accepted a life sentence for his crimes, but he doesn't want to testify against his lover, Allene Skinner, as she stands trial for murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

"I just wish to move on to prison and serve my time," Smith said, in a letter to a Clayton County Superior Court judge.
