Another woman has become a statistic due to domestic violence. Carlos Jerome Simpson, 23, was arrested in the death of his girlfriend Shikhira Dunson, 20, who was the mother of his 10 month old child.
Shikhira Dunson was fatally shot at Simpson’s Eagles Nest Circle home in DeKalb County, after the two got into an argument Monday night. Her body was found in the driveway of the home.
Carlos Jerome Simpson was charged with felony murder in the death of Shikhira Dunson. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports, Lawana Simpson said her brother was pointing the gun at Shikhira Dunson, and his girlfriend grabbed the gun and it fired.
It is a sad commentary that we continue to report on domestic violence, which shows no signs of abating. This is the third case in metro Atlanta in two weeks. A Johns Creek family was killed in a triple murder-suicide by Sindiver Grover, Melanie McQueen Moultrie was allegedly murdered by estranged husband Dondrelle Moultrie, and now Shikhira Dunson was killed by her boyfriend.
