ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Police Department has arrested a man they say caused the death of 27-year-old Tomorio Walton. Walton was shot and killed by a former CNN reporter during a robbery.
Skyy Durrell Barrs was arrested Thursday.
On June 30, CNN anchor Lynne Russell said Walton forced her into her motel room at gunpoint, where her husband, former CNN reporter, Chuck de Caro was shot. Walton demanded some of their belongings, but got angry when it took them too long and started shooting. De Caro shot back, killing him.
De Caro was shot three time and is expected to recover.
Police say Barrs was in on the robbery and was there that night watching. According to sources Barrs kept Walton as somewhat of a slave, to carry out robberies.
