An Augusta woman was charged Monday in the weekend shooting death of a man accused of abusing her in the past, authorities said.
Angel Burley, 40, was charged with murder in Sunday’s slaying of 46-year-old Ahmed Jabari Hill Sr. on Tullocks Hill Road. Hill was shot around noon on Sunday, Nov. 20 and rushed to Augusta University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:57 p.m.
The couple have a previous relationship. Hill was arrested in August 2021 for domestic violence and child cruelty for allegedly dragging Burley from a car in front of her 4-year-old daughter. Those charges remained pending at the time of Sunday’s murder with very little action over the last year in court.
At the time of her alleged assault, Burley said Hill was her ex-boyfriend. But she said she was getting a ride from him to her residence when an argument started.
“Upon arrival of the residence, he began to drag her out of the vehicle with his hands,” a 2021 sheriff’s report says. “Once out of the vehicle, he began to drag her down the gravel driveway.”
Burley told officers that this was not the first time that Hill had hit her. She claimed he hit her in the nose with his fist in December 2020, causing a laceration to the nose and a nasal bone fracture. She had documentation showing that she went to University Hospital for treatment of that injury, but she never filed a sheriff’s report.
According to authorities Hill also has a history of family violence from 2010.
