Bailey was shot and killed July 18, 2010 as he was washing his car outside his South Side home. He'd just gotten off duty from the detail assigned to then-Mayor Richard Daley's home.

Court records show Carter was on parole for aggravated battery to another police officer when Bailey was shot. Carter was in a state prison for violating parole when Chicago police began questioning him three weeks ago about Bailey's murder. The Cook County state's attorney's office says bond for Carter was set at $500,000 for an unrelated carjacking.
