The woman denied the claims and at some point heard two gunshots, then saw Roberts leaning out of his vehicle, Jones said.
Anderson then hit his girlfriend and told her, “Don’t make me kill you, too,” according to officials. He had already fled the scene in his SUV by the time police arrived. Anderson was arrested in Decatur about a month later.
While awaiting trial, officials said they found out Anderson called his girlfriend multiple times asking her not to testify. Jones added that a letter written by Anderson in an inmate’s jail cell was found and appeared to reveal a plan to have his own girlfriend killed prior to trial.
