A Douglas County grand jury has indicted the woman accused of running over and killing a pedestrian after a fight with her ex-boyfriend.
Brehonna Nicole Turner, 23, of Ellenwood, was indicted on one count of malice murder and two counts each of felony murder and aggravated assault, Assistant District Attorney Brian Fortner said.
The indictment was handed down Friday, three weeks after Turner allegedly struck and killed Alexandria Wells at a Douglasville townhome complex. Wells, 23, was standing outside the Ashley Oaks townhomes complex when she was allegedly hit by Turner before 10 p.m. Jan. 31, Douglasville Police Chief Chris Womack previously said.
Witnesses told police Turner was in a heated argument with her ex-boyfriend at the complex and sprayed him with pepper spray before she got into her car. As she was attempting to leave the complex, she allegedly ran into Wells, who was an innocent third party not involved in the domestic dispute, Womack said.
Turner remained Tuesday in the Douglas County jail, where she was being held without bond.
