Woman police say hit, killed 2-year-old arrested again for DWI

Sunday, July 27th, 2014

PENDER CO., NC (WWAY) — Stevie Wallace, 28, the woman who police say hit and killed two-year-old Carter Gilson, has been arrested for her second DWI in five days.

Wallace was charged with reckless driving to endanger, failure to secure a passenger under 16 and DWI.
She’s being held in Pender County jail under a $50,000 secured bond.

Today, family members learned she was arrested yet again. We spoke with Wallace’s husband just minutes after he found out. Todd Throckmorton learned she landed back in jail through a phone call from his father-in-law.
He says, after seven years together he’s fed up with her actions. Saying if she doesn’t go to prison, he’s lost all faith in the justice system.

“I mean she’s gonna kill somebody else. Someone like that has no business being out in society,” Throckmorton said. “Especially having kids with her. Lock her up and don’t let her out.”

Prosecutors say it does not look like any charges will be filed against Wallace for two year-old Carter Gilson’s death. The accident was on private property and investigators say she was not obviously intoxicated.
But her husband says, he looked through her text messages and they tell a different story.

Coming up at 11 we’ll hear more from that exclusive interview.
Including who she was texting just an hour before the accident. The answer might surprise you.
