Ashley “AJ” Jewell Death **Update**

Frederick Richardson, the suspect accused of murdering Kandi Burruss’s ex-fiance AJ Jewell, appeared in an Atlanta courtroom earlier today on voluntary manslaughter charges and was denied bond. According to Columbus Urban Life, Richardson’s attorney attempted to get the charges of manslaughter dismissed however the judge in the case denied the request. His attorney argued that “the medical examiner has not officially determined a cause of death to support the manslaughter charge” and that AJ could have died from a health problem. His attorney also claims that AJ Jewell pulled a gun on Frederick and delivered the first blow.

There has been many stories floating around online regarding the possible motive behind the killing including a rumored relationship that AJ Jewell might have had with Frederick Richardson’s wife Veronica Jones, however, Hip Hop Enquirer was tipped off a day after the incident on what possibly happened that night. Peep it below:

Our source stated that a short time after midnight Ashley “AJ” Jewell was approached by several men in the club’s parking lot who were supposedly friends of “Cornbread” husband to former Body Tap owner Veronica M. Jones. Our source stated that Ms. Jones and Ashley Jewell were in an ongoing dispute over how he acquired the club from her and apparently she was not happy with the terms of that acquisition. We were told that Mr. Jewell purchased the club for a million dollars and the deal was supposed to have been completed last week but that there were issues as to the terms of the agreement.

Our source stated that Ms. Jones’s husband Cornbread and his “goons” ambushed Mr. Jewell in the parking lot upon his arrival and allegedly Fredrick Richardson delivered the fatal blow.

What was not reported anywhere else is the fact that AJ didn’t want Fredrick Richardson to work in the club since he assumed ownership and it had nothing to do with him being romantically involved with original club owner Veronica M. Jones according to our sources. Aj was very much in love with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burress and having a romantic relationship with Ms. Jones was far fetch according to our sources. In fact, AJ really didn’t want Veronica Jones around The Body Tap Strip Club but went along with it because she held the liquor license to the club stated our well placed source.

Ms. Jones was not a stranger to controversy when back in 2006 her liquor license was suspended for 15 days by the City of Atlanta License Review Board citing that the establishment permitted the solicitation of prostitution and Public indecency. Several years earlier, Ms. Jones owned another strip club in Atlanta that was mysteriously set on fire. Her former business partner was later charged and convicted of arson.

There seems to be alot going on with this story that the public will never know about. All of this can be considered speculation and rumors. My prayers are with Kandi Burruss for staying strong through all of this. Earlier today Kandi posted to her twitter account: “I was @ the bank counter & the teller passed me a note that said “I love u & u r in my prayers”. I almost started cryin right there.”

AJ’s funeral will take place this Friday at Ray of Hope Christian Church.

    “Life is not a crystal stair” I think that langston Hughes said it best. No one will ever know tha pain that you are going through and no one can tell you that it is going to be okay, I think Kandi said that one best. So at this point and time all we fan tell Kandi is that God will bring her through this trying time And that things will brighten up with time. Your in prayer
