Terry was about to deliver his statement at the time, after Madison was sentenced to death for the killings of Terry's daughter Shirellda — who was just 18 at the time of her murder — as well as 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley and 38-year-old Angela Deskins — which all took place between October 2012 and July 2013.
