Drug dealer gets death for killing woman

Sunday, October 17, 1999

HOUSTON (AP) - A drug dealer was sent to death row for abducting, raping and killing a woman after a bloody shootout during an apparent botched drug sale.

State District Judge Mike Wilkinson read the sentence imposed by jurors Friday for Charles Mamou Jr., 24.

Mamou was convicted for the slaying of 17-year-old Mary Carmouche, who was with a group that met Mamou near the Astrodome on Dec. 6, 1998. Prosecutors said they believe Mamou and a member of Carmouche's group might have schemed to steal from the other.

Mamou opened fire when Carmouche's group arrived, shooting Terrance Gibson, 22; Kevin Walter, 24 and Carmouche's date, Dion Holley, 21.

Gibson died from his wounds. Holley and Walter recovered.

After the shootings, Mamou got in the group's car and left, with Carmouche still in the back seat. She later was shot after being forced to perform a sex act for Mamou, prosecutors said.

Mamou fled to his home state of Louisiana and was accused of an August 1998 murder in Lafayette, but the charge was later dismised. A witness also testified Mamou was the triggerman in a Sept. 5, 1998 slaying of Anthony Williams, 27, in Houston.

Mamou remains charged in Gibson's death but has not been charged in connection with Williams' death.

Defense attorneys Wayne Hill and Kurt Wentz argued during closing arguments that Mamou's connection to the Williams killing was nebulous and that Mamou was "seduced" by the drug underworld.

Prosecutor Claire Connors disagreed, calling Mamou a "vicious, ruthless, cold-blooded" murderer.
