On the tape, Cheryl Shepherd is heard telling dispatchers, "She is still breathing, but barely. Please hurry. I don't know how many times he shot her. They were arguing."
 
At one point she yells, "Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me Kasandra, stay with me.”

Shepherd described Perkins’ injuries to the operator, saying that she was “barely” awake, bleeding and wounded in the back. Regarding her son, she simply said, “He left.”


 
Cheryl, who now has custody of the couple’s 3-month-old daughter, later told the Associated Press, "That's my son, and I love him. She's my daughter-in-law, just like my daughter."
 
On Saturday, Belcher, a Kansas City Chiefs linebacker, shot Kasandra and then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and killed himself in front of Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli and Coach Romeo Crennel.
