A Mississippi woman is accused of fatally shooting her husband while streaming an argument they were having on Facebook Live Saturday morning.
Police say Kadejah Michelle Brown, 28, has been charged with murder after she allegedly shot and killed Jeremy Brown, 28, inside their home in Lowndes County.
In shocking video before the incident, the woman confronts her husband who she says is never at home to help with their children as Kadejah’s mother is also heard.
At one point, the fight turns physical as Jeremy repeatedly tells his wife to ‘keep your hands off me’ and to leave him alone, even as he’s knocked into the phone which had been set down on a piece of furniture.
Just before the shot is heard, Kadejah is heard yelling ‘I’ll kill your a**, b**ch.’
Afterward, Kadejah and her mother scream loudly with Kadejah saying ‘I don’t wanna go to jail’ and her mother running out of the house screaming ‘help me’ as children are heard crying in the background.
The Facebook Live began with Kadejah lamenting about her husband not being at home to help with their kids.
According to social media posts, the couple had four kids together.
Kadejah and her own mother go back and forth discussing how Jeremy is not around to help her with the housework and children before Jeremy walks in the door.
The man appears to be talking on the phone with another person as the wife continues to film their interaction.
Kadejah attempts to grab the man’s phone as she attempts to goad him into talking.
‘Don’t touch me. I’ll call the police over that,’ Jeremy says.
As the wife becomes increasingly physical, her mother accosts the man.
‘This is your family, you’re supposed to be here helping, taking care of these kids,’ Kadejah’s mother tells Jeremy.
During one of the first tussles between the couple, the phone streaming the video is knocked down and the camera is blacked out.
The couple continues to fight with Kadejah’s mother saying just one second before the shot goes off: ‘Y’all need to start talking about this.’
A loud bang is then heard followed by screaming and Kadejah yelling out ‘oh s**t, I don’t wanna go to jail.’
Among the screaming, the woman’s mother can be heard running out of the home.
Kadejah’s mom yells out ‘help me’ repeatedly outside.
‘I want daddy,’ a child not seen on camera can be heard crying.
‘Your daddy’s dead,’ Kadejah responds through sobs.
The child continues crying loudly as the woman begins screaming ‘the gun went off.’
‘I didn’t know one in the chamber,’ Kadejah cries out. ‘I’m sorry baby.’
According to Jeremy’s Facebook page, the couple celebrated their anniversary earlier this month.
In a post from October, the husband discussed his ‘not perfect’ relationship.
‘I JUST WANT TO SAY I KNOW PEOPLE LIKE TO JUDGE ABOUT ME AND MY WIFE RELATIONSHIP ABOUT US BEING SO PERFECT. WE ARE NOT PERFECT WE ARE HUMANS JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE,’ Jeremy wrote.
‘YES I HAVE 4 CHILDREN WITH MY WIFE NAW NOT BY MULTIPLE WOMAN JUST WANTED TO LET THAT BE KNOWN JUST BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE TO RUN AND TALK.… IF YOU GONE TALK SPEAK FACTS…’ he continued.
According to Lowndes County Sheriff Eddie Hawkins, a 9 mm handgun was recovered at the scene along with other physical evidence.
Brown was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center.
No bond has been set at this time.
‘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,’ Hawkins said in a statement.
‘Fortunately, Brown is in custody and we look forward to the criminal justice system holding her accountable,’ Hawkins said.
