Ashley “AJ” Jewell Death **Update**

October 6, 2009 6 comments

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. Read more…

Kandi’s Ex- Fiancee, AJ from the “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Dies

Atlanta homicide detectives have arrested a suspect in the beating death of the former fiancé of the newest member of the reality television show The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Fredrick Richardson has been charged with voluntary manslaughter. Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, who was engaged to Kandi Burruss until last August, died of massive head injuries he suffered in a “one-on-one” fight in the parking lot of an Atlanta strip bar, the Body Tap Club in the 1200 block of Marietta Boulevard. Richardson was also hospitalized due to injuries sustained in the fight and is at Grady Memorial Hospital, but will be jailed once released by medical staff. Atlanta police spokesman Officer James Polite said detectives were still “trying to figure out [what happened]. We had a pretty good number of witnesses that are being cooperative.” But the cause of the fight was still not known Saturday.
Polite said Jewell worked at the club but he did not know in what capacity. Burruss said in an interview with the entertainment Web site last month that Jewell had bought an interest in an Atlanta club but she did not identify the business. Body Tap is popular with celebrities. Burruss, who has a daughter, was flooded with condolences Saturday on her social networking pages on and Kandi Burruss thanked friends for their condolences and asked for prayers for Jewell’s six children. She also asked to be left alone. “im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk, i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone,” she wrote on a post. She also posted that she had to get some rest before her uncle’s funeral on Saturday. Kim Zolciak, a fellow “Housewives” castmate, said in a phone interview from California Saturday morning how “disgusted” she was that someone could take a life like this. “My heart and prayers are with Kandi, AJ’s children and family,” she said. “I can’t imagine the loss they’re feeling. I’ll be there for my dear friend Kandi.” Zolciak added, “I adored A.J. He will definitely be missed.”
