A photo of Hunter is posted with this case summary. He was arrested and charged with Smith's murder on February 2. At first he claimed he didn't know what happened to her, but the third time police questioned him, he stated his aunt had shot Smith in the chest during an argument at his aunt's apartment, then drove away with her and returned without her. Investigators checked the apartment in question, but found no evidence that a shooting had taken place there.
In the spring of 2018, Hunter was tried for Smith's murder. The blood found in Hunter's car was hers, one witness testified that he'd seen Hunter "with what appeared to be the lifeless body of a woman in his car," and another witness said Hunter asked him for help in getting rid of a handgun.
The jury convicted Hunter after only 45 minutes' deliberation. He was sentenced to the maximum term, life in prison without parole, under the Habitual Felony Offender Act; he has four previous felony convictions.
Smith left behind two young children. Her body has not been found, but foul play is suspected due to the circumstances involved.
