Mississippi mom allegedly shoots husband dead on Facebook Live

By Yaron Steinbuch,


A Mississippi woman has been charged with murder after she allegedly gunned down her husband following an argument — which played out to her friends and family on Facebook Live.

Kadejah Michelle Brown, 28, of Columbus, and her husband, Jerry Brown, were captured fighting in the chilling video, which was livestreamed on Saturday, police said.

Lowndes County Sheriff Eddie Hawkins told WCBI that the couple had been arguing most of the night and that Jerry was trying to leave the apartment to defuse the situation.

“What is the conversation you want to have,” Kadejah repeatedly asks him as he prepares to leave.

“Don’t touch me! Tell your daughter to keep her hands off me,” he says while holding a phone up to his ear while another woman, apparently Kadejah’s mother, is heard in the same room.

“You’re supposed to be here!” Kadejah says as she berates him for not helping with their kids.

“Don’t touch me! I’ll call the police over that!” Jerry tells her as the confrontation becomes more heated and physical.

“This is your family, you’re supposed to be here helping, taking care of the kids,” Kadejah’s mother is heard saying.

At one point, the picture goes black, but the escalating argument is still heard for several seconds before a single gunshot is heard and strident wails erupt.

A child also is heard crying amid the chaos.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the apartment at 500 Green Tree Drive about 7:40 a.m. Saturday and arrested Kadejah, who has been charged with murder, police said.

“It appeared that Brown and the victim were involved in an argument that turned physical. This incident was captured on audio / video on Facebook live,” the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office said.

The husband died of a single gunshot wound and a 9mm pistol was recovered at the scene, according to police.

“There was a history of domestic violence between Brown and the victim,” Hawkins said in a statement.

“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,” he added.
