RIVERDALE — Police say an Ellenwood woman stabbed her baby’s father to death Sunday, during a dispute over the child.

Clayton County Police have charged Jemeka Vontrell Riley with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime, according to Clayton Police officer E. Sotto.

Riley, 25, appeared in Clayton County Magistrate Court Monday and was denied bond.

Police allege the incident happened around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, at 1801 Bentwater Court in Riverdale.

“According to witnesses, a domestic disturbance argument escalated and ended in the stabbing of Shamontay Robinson,” Sotto said.

Robinson, 26, was transported to Southern Regional Medical Center, where he died.

....Many people might place the blame on firearms for weapons of violence; The sad fact and truth of the matter, any household tool can be applied as a weapon of violence.
