“With gun raised, [the] accused said, ‘You're going to die,’ ‘I'm going to kill you,’ and ‘I'm about to take your life,’” reads an arrest warrant obtained by the Journal-Constitution.

Reid was reportedly still in the apartment when the police arrived and was immediately arrested and charged with murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and marijuana possession, and is being held without bond, according to the Georgia paper.

A friend of Bell’s told Channel 2 Action News that the couple had been having problems in their relationship but that Bell thought she could handle the situation.
