Fulton County Child Custody Exchange Turns Deadly

A planned child custody exchange that was typically supervised and uneventful turned tragic last week when an ex-boyfriend shot and killed the mother of his two children outside a shopping center in Milton.

The shooting demonstrates the tensions and fraught emotionalism that can sometimes attach to matters relating to family law and separation. The killing was the third domestic violence incident that resulted in a fatality in metro Atlanta over the first weekend in June.

The man and woman were both 25 and from Canton, and parents of a 1-year-old and 3-year-old child. Relations between them were stated to be historically rocky, with the woman having a protective order against her former partner.

For unknown reasons, the exchange was not supervised. The woman was shot four times in the face and neck, in front of her children, and then brought to a local hospital by the attacker. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The man was arrested at the hospital and is now in the Fulton County Jail, where he will remain until facing a judge on June 20 at a preliminary hearing. He faces charges of murder, felony murder, cruelty to children, aggravated assault with a weapon, tampering with evidence and possession of a firearm during the carrying out of a felony.
