A 29-year-old woman was arrested over the weekend and charged with shooting and killing a woman in DeKalb County earlier this month.
Alexandra Liz Bodie allegedly shot and killed Brandy Jean Brummett, 40, of Atlanta on May 11, according to a statement from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. Bodie, who lives in Lithonia, shot Brummett in the chest with a black handgun in the area of 2800 NE Expressway in Chamblee, the sheriff’s office said.
Officials have not said what led up to the alleged shooting, or if there is a suspected motive.
The sheriff’s office, along with the U.S. Marshals and the Chamblee Police Department, arrested Bodie in Doraville without incident Saturday.
Bodie faces one count of felony murder.
According to county court records, Bodie pleaded guilty in 2015 to family violence battery and disorderly conduct charges.
