Here is a sentencing follow-up to previous story we reported. William
Eddins, State Attorney for the First Judicial Circuit, says Christopher
Terrell was sentenced to 18 years in the Department of Corrections after
his plea to Vehicular Homicide in the November 2011 death of Sean Markham.
In the early morning hours of November 3, 2011, the Defendant, who was
under a court order to stay away from Bryson after having pled guilty to a
domestic violence incident on October 18, 2011, was waiting in the parking
lot of Helen Back near Ms. Bryson’s car.
Bryson arrived at Helen Back with Markham and upon seeing the Defendant,
she ducked in Markham’s car to hide. The Defendant yelled at Markham and
Markham drove away. The Defendant got into his vehicle and chased Markham
down Okaloosa Island, over the Brooks Bridge and into downtown Fort Walton
reaching speeds of 98 mph.
Coming up on traffic in front of the Fort Walton Beach Library, Markham
applied his brakes and slowed, the Defendant did not. The Defendant hit the
rear of Markham’s vehicle sending Mr. Markham’s car crashing into two trees
and rolling back into the westbound lanes. Markham was ejected from the
car. Markham succumbed to his injuries on November 16, 2011. Taryn Bryson
suffered minor injuries and the Defendant was not injured in the accident.
The Defendant will serve 15 years for Markham’s death followed by three
years for Aggravated Stalking and Reckless Driving and his license will be
permanently revoked. The case was investigated by the Fort Walton Beach
Police Department and prosecuted by Angela Mason.
