The family of a man killed during a weekend shooting in West Palm Beach had some harsh words to deliver to his accused killer.

In court Monday, the family of Robert Anthony III screamed out, "you piece of sh***" once Robert Finney appeared. 

Finney was in court for his first appearance; a judge denied his bond and ordered "no contact" with the victim's family.

Police say Finney shot his wife, Roqueria Mills and Robert Anthony Saturday night. The two were parked in a Scion at the Village Place Apartments on Brandywine Road.

Finney surrendered to police; they say when they arrived, Finney put his hands in the air stating, "I did it, help her!"

According to police, Finney performed CPR on Mills. The two victims were taken to the hospital; it's where Anthony later died.

Mills was last listed in critical condition.

After further review, Finney was heard saying during a 911 call,"Why you cheating on me?"

Court records show Finney and Mills were getting a divorce and Mills's family told WPTV she had moved out and she was "trying to get away from him," and that "cheating" was a stretch. "She (Mills) and Anthony were only friends."

Finney's family did not comment following their son's first appearance. Mills's family said they were hurting for them too.
