This report contains references to domestic violence that some readers may find distressing.

A woman has been accused of murdering her husband after allegedly shooting him while streaming it on Facebook Live, according to a statement made by a local Sheriff’s office.

As reported by Dexterto, 28-year-old Kadejah Michelle Brown was arrested at 7.42AM on Saturday 25 March after deputies from the Lowndes County Sheriff’s office, Georgia, responded to a domestic violence call. The call involved a shooting during which one male victim was killed. Brown was subsequently charged with murder. The Sheriff’s office confirmed that the 28-year-old male victim died from a singular gunshot wound.

Reports claim that the pair were involved in an altercation shortly prior to the shooting which was being streamed via Facebook Live. The victim was pronounced dead by officers at the scene, where a 9mm handgun and “other physical evidence” was also recovered.

Sheriff Eddie Hawkins responded to the incident saying, “There was a history of domestic violence between Brown and the victim. This was a tragic and senseless murder and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victim. Fortunately, Brown is in custody and we look forward to the criminal justice system holding her accountable.”

Brown was taken into custody without incident and was then transported to the Lowndes County Adult Detention Centre where she is being held awaiting her initial trial appearance. No bond has yet been set and the incident remains under investigation by the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office.
