BROOKHAVEN, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - A Fulton County judge ruled Wednesday prior acts are admissible in wedding guest murder trial.
Atlanta Police said Jayden Myrick and Torrus Fleewood robbed Christian Broder in the summer of 2018. Investigators said Myrick shot and killed Broder when Broder asked if he could have his license back.
Prosecutors said that Myrick committed this as a gang-related crime. Both men have a criminal past and the prosecution in the case asked the judge to allow “prior bad acts” to be used in this case.
An assistant DA for the prosecution said Fleewood was involved in an incident back in 2016 where two women were the victims.
The judge said the “prior acts” are admissible for motive only and evidence of street gang activities.
