CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
The fiance of a Charlotte woman, murdered at a local restaurant tells WBTV he is "very upset" about a proposal making its way through Charlotte City Hall and the State Legislative Building in Raleigh.
Keith Smith says the "ban the box" bill is "ridiculous." The proposal would remove the question that asks potential employees if they've been convicted of a felony from city and state applications.
Police say Smith's fiance, Danielle Watson, was stabbed two dozen times, inside The Flying Biscuit by her colleague, Mark Cox.
Watson, was pregnant at the time of the murder. Cox pleaded guilty to the two murders earlier this year, and is serving two life sentences behind bars.
Several state lawmakers introduced the bill in March, hoping to "ban the box" from job applications.
The state will still be able to conduct criminal background checks on any applicant. The bill does not address local municipalities or private businesses.
"Take that box away, and God forbid something like what happens to Danielle happens again. Then what?," Smith said.
The movement is also making rounds at the local level. Around 100 people showed up with signs to the Charlotte City Council meeting on February 25th, asking council members to "ban the box" on city applications.
Some states like Massachusetts have banned the box. Charlotte City Council voted to send the proposal to a committee. The committee is expected to vote on the proposal April 18th.
