Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher kills girlfriend Kasandra Perkins after the two got in an argument Saturday morning. He then committed suicide in front of the coach and GM at the team’s training facility near Arrowhead Stadium. The Daily Mail reports  a friend said they quarreled frequently, and added that they fought when Perkins arrived home at 1 a.m. after attending a Trey Songz concert.

A friend also told the Kansas City Star she had frequently seen them argue over the course of their relationship – though she had no reason to believe their fights had ever become violent. Kasandra Perkins’ family members told TMZ, “Jovan and Kasandra always seemed to be in love. In fact, when Kasandra got pregnant, she and Jovan were ecstatic. Ever since the baby was born in September, the two couldn’t have seemed happier together.”
