A Shreveport man accused of shooting to death a Bossier City apartment manager shortly after he was fired gets his day in court on Monday.

Robert Earl Walter, 55, faces a second-degree murder charge in the October 2012 shooting death of April Fulghum, 32.

Fulghum of Greenwood was shot to death in the office of the Lexington Place Apartments in the 100 block of Barrington Drive in Bossier City. Walter had been fired just days earlier from his maintenance job at the apartment complex.

Two other office employees who were inside the office at the time of the shooting were not injured.

Police say Walter later turned himself in to Shreveport police at their training facility on Greenwood Road.

Walter remains booked at the Bossier Maximum Security Prison. His bond is set at $750,000.
