A witness allegedly watched from a window as two men beat Majesty Conover before he was shot to death June 4.
Conover was in a fetal position as 20-year-old Micki Antonio Brown Jr. stood over him, firing six shots, prosecutor Jimmy Daniels said during a bond hearing Thursday in Bibb County Superior Court.
Brown’s lawyer, Rick Waller, said evidence will show that Brown was elsewhere during the killing and “the so-called eyewitness was elsewhere.”
Brown, who was working at Labor Finders before his arrest, denies any involvement in the fatal shooting, Waller said.
Bibb County Superior Court Judge Verda Colvin denied bond at the conclusion of the hearing, which lasted about three minutes.
Daniels said Brown and his roommate, 25-year-old Lantonio Rodriques Hill, sought out Conover at his home, at Colonial Terrace Apartments on Houston Avenue.
The motive for the killing was jealousy, involving Brown’s girlfriend and Conover, Daniels said. He didn’t elaborate.
Conover wasn’t armed, according to arrest warrants in the case.
In his argument opposing bond, Daniels said Brown was on probation at the time of the shooting stemming from an aggravated assault case.
He has outstanding warrants issued in Fulton County for terroristic threats, obstruction and robbery by force, Daniels said.
Brown and Hill, who lived on Ridgeland Avenue, are being held at the county jail without bond.
