A mother of four was reportedly murdered by her ex-girlfriend in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this week.
Shakyia Perkins, the victim’s ex-girlfriend, fatally shot Corneshia Butler on Thursday. Friends and family claim Butler had a restraining order against Perkins because she burned the young mother’s Mercedes-Benz last year and stalked her for months after their breakup.
Perkins is also said to have been envious of Butler and committed the violent act in front of her children.
Butler ended their relationship many months ago, and social media posts from acquaintances indicated the former pair had a history of domestic problems throughout the course of their six-year partnership.
Perkins published a mysterious Facebook post from the day before Butler passed away about starting again and forgetting the past.
Perkins was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm or weapon, and cruelty to children as posted by the Fulton County Police Department. Her previous records were related to burning Butler’s vehicle in October 2021.
News of Butler’s death went viral on Facebook and Twitter as users were still mourning the tragic loss of Shanquella Robinson, a young woman who died during a vacation to Cabo with a group of friends.
She’s lives in my neighbourhood. I can literally take a pic of the pink Mercedes if I look out my window. This is so sad! I seen her come home that day I promise you guys. I dont have a Facebook so I had no idea she was is such a dispute not that I could have done anything.
