Christina says she'll never forget the night six years ago when she discovered her son Stephin's dying body.
“I found my son Stephin lying in a ditch and as I was running up to him, all I could see was the side of his face was blown apart,” says Christina.
Christina says she believes the 20-year-old’s good friend Devin was responsible for shooting her son and leaving him to die, after the two got in an altercation.
