carlos jerome simpsonCarlos Jerome Simpson, 23, was charged with felony murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend Shikhira Dunson, 20, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Simpson and Dunson have a 10-month-old child together.

“Last night, I was bathing my kids and my son came in and said they were arguing,” said Lawana Simpson, sister of the accused.

Lawana explained that during the heat of the argument, Carlos walked outside; Dunson followed and began “messing with him.” Carlos pointed a gun at Dunson but he didn’t mean for it to go off.

“It’s a tragedy,” said Charles Simpson, the suspect’s father. “We loved her like she was our own,” he said of Dunson.

“This wasn’t no hate thing,” he said. “It just happened, and now she’s gone from us.”

The fatal shooting happened on the eve of the funeral for another of Charles Simpson’s children.

He said his oldest son, Charles Simpson Jr., was killed in prison earlier this month.

Charles Simpson Jr. was serving a sentence for aggravated assault when he died Feb. 10 during a scuffle at Smith State Prison near Glennville. His death is being investigated by the GBI.

Charles Simpson Jr.’s funeral is set for Tuesday afternoon at Emmanuel Spiritual Holy Temple in southeast Atlanta.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a rare occurrence. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report on Intimate Partner Violence, on average,  more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in this country every day.
