Man admits statement made freely

THOMASVILLE -- A man charged with shooting a store clerk in the face during a 2001 convenience store holdup testified Tuesday he was frustrated during questioning by lawmen in October 2002.

Cedric Carter testified he was not forced to make the statements Superior Court Judge Richard Cowart ruled will be admissible in prosecution of the case.

Carter, 23, is charged with entering a Carroll Hill convenience store on a Sunday night in October 2001 and shooting a female clerk in the face.

In questioning Carter during the Tuesday Thomas County Superior Court hearing, Jim Hardy, Southern Judicial Circuit chief assistant district attorney, asked the defendant about when he "blew the woman's face off."
