MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A Shelby County grand jury indicted a Memphis man in the murder of his girlfriend.

Joshua Fisher, 32, is being held without bond. He was arrested two months after his girlfriend was shot and killed in October 2016. Bria Isaac, 28, was found in her Midtown apartment with her body arched over the bathtub. 

Isaac's family became visibly upset during a court hearing in December when a judge gave Fisher an $8,000 bond. At the time, the family didn't know that the $8,000 bond was for a separate case against him.

"He shot my baby in the head twice and once in her chest," Isaac's mother, Melissa Issac, said. "Then he lived there, in the apartment three days, while my daughter was bent backward over the bathtub."

Investigators said Fisher shot and killed Isaac when she tried to break up with him. Isaac's family said Fisher was abusive toward her, which is why she wanted to end the relationship.
