For the Season 2 finale of A&E’s “The Killer Speaks,” the show is interviewing an unusual killer — a hired hitman. But not only was Van Brett Watkins a hired gun, but he was hired by a professional football player to kill the player’s pregnant girlfriend.

The episode description reads: “On Nov. 15, 1999 the 24-year-old pregnant girlfriend of Carolina
Panthers football player Rae Carruth is shot four times and left for
dead in her car. Charlotte North Carolina Investigators suspect Carruth,
but soon learn that this murder is not what it seems. They discover
that they are dealing with a cold and remorseless killer where every
murder has its price. Convicted killer Van Brett Watkins reveals the
sordid details of the only hit he regrets doing.”

Watch these chilling clips of other interviews with Watkins, including one from “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.” “The Killer Speaks” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
