Ashley “A.J.” Jewell’s Alleged Killer ReleasedPublished by Dior Noir on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 3:00 pm.
Frederick Richardson, the man accused in the fatal beating of Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, the ex fiancé of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, has been released from Atlanta’s Fulton County jail.
Richardson made a court appearance yesterday and was freed after posting a $10,000 bond set by Judge Karen Woodson, although he was initially held without bond following his arrest after the fight at Body Tap night club.
Last week a Fulton County corner’s report stated that Sickle Cell disease may have been a contributing factor to A.J.’s death. Despite the report, A.J.’s parents told TMZ that they still feel like their son was murdered: “Our son ‘A.J.’ had the sickle cell trait which caused no related medical problems during his life. We feel AJ’s death was a result of the malicious attack by the individual and/or individuals present during the fight.”
Richardson will not return to court until he’s indicted.
