          Alleged Kidnap Survivor Remembers Boyfriend Who She Says Was Killed In Front Of Her


          February 13, 2017

          On August 31, 2016, Kala Brown and her boyfriend, Charlie Carver, were allegedly kidnapped by Todd Kohlhepp on his remote South Carolina property. Brown says she had been hired by Kohlhepp to clean one of the buildings on the property, and she brought Carver with her to be safe. Shortly after arriving, Brown says Kohlhepp shot Carver three times in his chest and killed him, and then locked her up in a storage container with handcuffs and chained at the neck, where she remained until she was found two months later. 

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil airing Monday, Brown speaks out for the first time about the alleged abduction. In the video above, she tells Dr. Phil about her relationship with Carver, with whom she had been in a serious relationship for five months.
