Georgia woman shot to death in front of toddler daughter, boyfriend arrested


DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Police in suburban Atlanta say a man is in custody for allegedly shooting a woman to death in front of her 3-year-old daughter.

The woman, identified as 20-year-old Akiela Peters-Williams, was shot Friday inside a DeKalb County motel room.

After further investigation, DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Michaela Vincent says police arrested the victim’s boyfriend 22-year-old Shadrac Nkrumah of Atlanta.

Vincent tells local news outlets that when police arrived about 6 p.m., the child was still in the room. She has since been turned over to relatives.
