Heith Gleason is said to have picked up a gun, saying 'I'll kill her' before walking outside and a gunshot was heard, according to a witness.The affadavit says he then came back in the house, saying 'he did not kill her', before taking Gage and a .22-caliber firearm outside with him, KOAA New 5 reports. The witness said they then heard more gunshots before Gleason is alleged to have come back inside again, this time reportedly telling the witness that his son 'just earned his man card'. Amy was found in the driver's seat of the burnt out car with a number of bullet holes in the door. When officers went to Gleason's home nearby they say they found it empty with the back door open.
