      Victim's daughter: 'He took my mommy'

      NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A shooting victim's daughter says her mother was supposed to be coming home from a night out with coworkers when she was shot and killed in North Charleston early Saturday morning.

      It's hard to describe the pain of a daughter who has lost her mother.

      "I can't even explain it," said Latoya Warren. "I have a 6-year-old brother that I have to explain to that his mom isn't coming home."

      Loved ones wiped the tears from their eyes as they comforted Latoya Warren outside of bond court on Sunday.

      Police say on Saturday, 30-year-old Antwan Heyward shot and killed 43-year-old Collette Warren.

      "I don't think I've come to terms to grasp she is actually gone," said Latoya Warren.

      The 24-year-old woman says her mom was out celebrating a promotion on the job.

      "We went to the mall and we got her some shoes and everything. That was our last day, that Friday," she said.

      While she was out, Heyward was flirting with her mom who's been married for 23 years.

      "I've gotten calls saying she left the club and he followed her," Latoya Warren said.

      That's when police say around 3 a.m. Heyward shot and killed Warren in the driveway of a North Charleston home.

      Police found her with a single bullet in the front of her car; the car was still running and in reverse.

      Sunday morning, Latoya and her entire family stood in front of a bond court judge asking for justice.

      "I hope he never gets out of jail," said Latoya Warren. "I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, not even him. He has a mother and I still wouldn't want him to feel the pain that I feel."

      Heyward is charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
