Man Indicted in Woman’s Shooting Death

Aug. 16, 2019 – A southeast Memphis man has been indicted on first-degree murder charges in the shooting death of a female acquaintance in June, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Defendant Terrell Craft, 43, also was indicted on three counts of aggravated assault for pointing his gun at three other people who were with the victim. Craft is being held in the Shelby County Jail.
An investigation showed that the victim, Corrisha Teal, 26, was shot multiple times during a confrontation with Craft on the afternoon of June 14 this year near a townhome in the 6900 block of Birch Lake Drive.
Craft said he shot the victim because she had disrespected him in front of the others.
The case is being handled by Chief Prosecutor Theresa McCusker of the DA’s Vertical Team 1 which handles cases in General Sessions Div. 7 and Criminal Court Div. 1.
