Louisville's first homicide of 2018 started with an argument between a woman and her neighbor's boyfriend over a skillet of scrambled eggs, according to Louisville Metro Police.
The shooter, Michael Renee Hamblen Jr., was arrested Wednesday 11 days after killing Jasmine Newsome, 26. Hamblen has been charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
Louisville Police say the argument started after the woman cooked scrambled eggs while there with the suspect who was Newsome's neighbor's boyfriend but no further details about the argument were released.
After the argument, Newsome and her roommate were at Newsome's home when Hamblen came over a skillet of scrambled eggs and dumped them on the floor. Hamblen then demanded Newsome come clean up the mess, according to an arrest warrant.
Hamblen came over a second time without permission and fired a weapon at Newsome. Police say Hamblen fired 10 shots at her "pelvis and vagina area" but police were unable to recover the weapon.
Hamblen had previously been convicted of domestic violence in 2017 and 2014, he also pleaded guilty to fleeing police and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
He was arraigned Thursday and entered a not guilty plea to his charges in connection with Newsome's death. He is being held on $500,000 bail.
