COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC) - A woman accused of killing a Memphis pastor returned to court Tuesday.
Latoshia Daniels has pleaded not guilty to killing 36-year-old Brodes Perry and shooting his wife.
Perry was the executive pastor at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church.
The shootings occurred during an apparent domestic dispute. A police report says Daniels yelled “you broke my heart” while shooting Perry multiple times at Meridian Park Apartments in Collierville.
Daniels is charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.
Daniels stood handcuffed to the side while her attorney waived her preliminary hearing. She blew kisses to the gallery as she was escorted from the courtroom.
Daniels’ case will now be heard by a grand jury.
“It was in our best interest not to have the hearing today. Ms. Daniels will remain in custody pending Grand Jury action that could be in a few months,” her attorney Leslie Ballin said.
There’s no timeline on when a Grand Jury will review Daniels’ case.
