Less than a week after Angela Simmons‘ ex-fiancé Sutton Tennyson was shot and killed at his home in Atlanta, Georgia, the man allegedly behind the killing turned himself in to police.
According to People, Michael Williams handed himself over on Wednesday (November 7). After the 44-year-old was taken into custody he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and murder.
Sutton was found dead in his garage with multiple gunshot wounds on Saturday (November 3), TMZ reported. While initial reports claimed he was killed in a home invasion, cops told the site that Sutton was talking to a man, who was allegedly Michael, in his driveway when the conversation escalated and he was subsequently shot. The suspect reportedly fled in a car following the shooting.
On Monday (November 5), Angela paid tribute to her ex and son's father in a series of posts shared to Instagram. "Today would have been your birthday," she captioned a photo of him with their son Sutton Joseph Tennyson Jr. on Instagram Story. "And your son's original due date."
The day prior, Angela shared a series of photos and videos of her with Sutton and their son. "Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift . I’m hurting . I’m numb," the Growing Up Hip Hop star wrote before expressing her gratitude to those who have sent their condolences. "Thank you for the out pouring of love everyone . I cant believe I’m even saying Rest In Peace Sutton . I promise to hold SJ down in every way I promise ❣️" She later posted a video of her son looking at an old video of his late father. "Reflecting," she captioned the post. "He keeps replaying it 💔 RIP Sutton."
Angela and Sutton welcomed their first child together in September 2016 after getting engaged in April of that year. However, the two called it quits in 2017.
