JACKSONVILLE Fla. -- James Rhodes' aggressive outburst in the courtroom, after the State Attorney's Office announced it's seeking the death penalty, was enough to send chills down anyone's spine.
He's accused of killing 20-year-old Shelby Farah. He pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
Farah's mother said the outburst brought her back to the night her daughter was killed.
"It made me sick and then when he reacted the way he reacted in the courtroom all I kept thinking about was what did he do to my baby before he shot her," said Darlene Farah.
Farah says she's pushing for legislation to keep violent criminals off the street.
"We need a Shelby Farah Act," she said.
The State Attorney's Office said it's taking every measure to make sure roads never walks the street again.
"I want him to suffer just like my baby did," said Farah.
Shelby's mom knows she has a long battle ahead of her in court but she plans to fight for justice for her daughter who can no longer fight for herself.
"As long as I'm breathing, I'm going to be at every court hearing."
