Man held in death of 'Housewives' star's ex-fiance
ATLANTA (AP) - October 6, 2009 Ashley "A.J." Jewell died at a hospital after a scuffle at the Atlanta strip club Friday night. He was engaged to Kandi Burruss, the newest member of the Atlanta housewives cast, until August. He appeared in several episodes of the hit reality show, which follows metro Atlanta socialites. Magistrate Sylvia McCoy has ordered Frederick Richardson held on a voluntary manslaughter charge in Jewell's death. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Richardson's attorney, Dennis Scheib, tried to persuade McCoy to dismiss the charges because no cause of death has been determined.
