Frederick Richardson, the man accused of killing Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, RHOA Kandi Burruss ex-fiancee, was released on a $10,000 bond last Tuesday.

Richardson walked out of the Fulton County Jail around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to his attorney Dennis Scheib.

Richardson was then at the Fulton County Courthouse four hours later for a bond hearing, which was canceled because he was already free.

Only if he is indicted for killing Ashley “A.J.” Jewell would Richardson return to court, the judge said.

Police initially said Jewell died of a head injury but preliminary autopsy results suggest Jewell’s death may have been related to sickle cell anemia. The Fulton County medical examiner is waiting for test results before determining a cause of death.

According to defense attorney Dennis Scheib, Jewell threatened Richardson with a gun while the two men were in an office at the Body Tap.

After they reached the parking lot, Scheib said, Jewell threw the first punch.

The fight was brief.

Richardson drove himself to a hospital to be treated for a broken finger, and Jewell was taken to Piedmont Hospital, where he died later that evening.

Scheib complained after court that Richardson should not have been charged and jailed until the police finished its investigation, which depends on the autopsy results.

“He cooperated with the police and they chose to put him in jail … after they knew the man had a medical condition,” Scheib said.

This Thursday is the Reunion show for the Real Housewives of Atlanta. The host asked Kandi how she is doing since the incident. Watch below to see what Kandi has to say:

    why so surprised…..it wasn’t his fault. He better be glad this didn’t happen 15ysr ago….and Thank God for autopsy investigations, cuz he would be done. He (AJ) was a victim of his own lifestyle….even tho sickle cell was the determining factor……..

    His sickle cell symptoms just happened to kick in right as he was fighting. This doesn’t sound right. I am no expert on sickle cell, but is it possible that it was triggered by his injuries from the fight? Sounds shady!

  • cruzan trini

    I don’t understand this. So his punch landed at the same time A.J. was already dying from Sickle Cell disease???

  • cruzan trini

    10k????

    I was charged with MFG and DEL back in the 1990’s and my bond was a lot higher than that for my first damn offense.

    it’s a shame.
    my boy from middle school has sickle cell and i’ve seen him in at least 5 fights and he didn’t fall down dead. this is too shady.

    Will you stop?? He looks like NeNe

    this made me very sad. I’m not black, but I do agree that because AJ was not white, very few people will care OR seek justice for this crime. The justice system is very arbitrary. RIP AJ and I hope his children will be alright.

  • 1TruDiva w/the PlatinumVocals---Pimpin, Platinum style!!! J-Hud's concert was OFF THE MEAT RACK!!!!!!!!!

    I still say…if he was somewhere with at least ONE of his many children……

    I hate it that he died–especially under such tragic conditions but more important–the whole situation could’ve been avoided and all these many children could still have their father alive.

    the devil is liar and aj and all the rest of these types of people that live these lifestyles have believed in satan’s lies. stay out the streets and the streets won’t kill you. you can’t expect to be a street fighter and not die in a street fight. sorry for his children, but every action has an consequence. don’t get mad because justice was on the old dude’s side, the evidence proved he died from health issues complicated by the fight, not the fight in itself. wake up african american youth, get your lives right stop living for the world and all it’s trickery. again, stop living for the enemy because he is not your friend. karma is something else ain’t it?
