The man accused of killing 24-year-old Taylor Bins in DeKalb County is asking for bond.

While arguing with her about it, he began to beat her and dragged her down the stairs and into the street, the warrants allege. Along the way, it appeared Bins had a seizure and died.

The suspect’s relationship to the victim hasn’t been released, but warrants call the case one of family violence. Brown is said to have left the scene but was booked into jail days later on a murder charge.
