A man accused of killing a woman seen falling from a moving car surrendered Monday night, Atlanta police said.
Investigators believe Alfred Megbuluba, 31, who lives in Lilburn, was driving a Lamborghini on Oct. 10 when he got into a fight with a woman. According to witnesses, the woman, later identified as 28-year-old Catherine Khan, was thrown out or pushed from the car at the intersection of Peachtree and Piedmont roads. Khan, who lived in Snellville, died from her injuries.
Megbuluba had not been publicly identified until Monday. He has been charged with felony murder, theft by taking, financial transaction card fraud, and financial transaction card theft, according to police. He was denied bond Tuesday and remained in jail, records showed.
“This case is now considered closed by arrest,” Atlanta police said in a news release.
On both a Facebook page dedicated to Kahn and a GoFund Me page, friends and family shared memories of the woman remembered as kind and charismatic. Late Monday, Kahn’s mother posted a message on Facebook.
“Hi, this is Catherine’s mom, Elizabeth. I just want to thank everyone for the kind words, memories and pictures of my sweet baby girl,” the post stated. “It is such a comfort knowing how much she was loved. Catherine lived hard, played hard and unfortunately died hard. She’s not here anymore but she’s everywhere at the same time.”
A “Celebration of Life” event to honor Khan will be held Thursday at 5 p.m. at 12Stone Church in Snellville.
