A judge looked this inmate straight in the eyes and said something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Ewonus was found shot to death inside a vehicle on a quiet street in the middle of the day in late June. 

Fielder served time for drug sale charges and was paroled from prison in August.

Ewonus' parents said that their daughter was strong willed, vibrant and loved her family. They said that she had made some poor decisions in the past, including possible drug use, but she was actively working on bettering herself for the benefit of her son, whom she birthed last year. 

Fielder is being held in Wyandotte County jail. His bail was set to $1 million.
