Woman accused of streaming husband's murder live on Facebook

A domestic dispute caught on camera has ended in murder, police say.

A woman has been arrested for allegedly murdering her husband live on Facebook in what has been described as a "tragic and senseless" act of violence.

Suspect Kadejah Michelle Brown, 28, was taken into custody after she allegedly shot her husband Jeremy Roc Brown at their home in the US State of Mississippi, last Saturday.

Authorities said Brown live-streamed the moment she killed the 28-year-old victim, who died from a single gunshot wound. It appeared that Brown and her husband were involved in an argument that turned physical, police said.

The woman apparently confronted the victim as he tried to leave the home, all the while streaming the argument to friends and family on Facebook. Although the camera was pointed towards the ceiling at the time, the couple can be heard arguing in the background when a gunshot can be heard.

What follows is at least two women screaming for about one minute. Then a child can be heard crying, with one of the women apparently running around the home and shouting for help before the footage suddenly cuts.

Emergency services later arrived and pronounced Jeremy dead at the scene. Brown was reportedly arrested without incident and taken to a nearby detention centre, with no bond currently set.

A 9mm handgun was recovered at the scene along with other physical evidence, according to police.

"There was a history of domestic violence between Brown and the victim," Sheriff Eddie Hawkins said. "This was a tragic and senseless murder and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victim. Fortunately, Brown is in custody and we look forward to the criminal justice system holding her accountable."

The investigation is ongoing.
