The woman charged with killer her husband on a busy downtown Atlanta street is a lobbyist for a domestic violence group.

Yikes. The woman charged with killing her husband Monday night on the corner of North Avenue and West Peachtree is a lobbyist for a domestic violence group.

The AJC reports that Arelisha Bridges is a lobbyist for The National Declaration for Domestic Violence Order.  CL found that she was also formerly involved with a group called Glory To God, Inc. according to her lobbyist report with the State Ethics Commission.

Bridges, 45, allegedly shot and killed Anthony Rankins, 26, just five days after they were married.

Witnesses told police Bridges was wearing a nightgown and a shower cap as she argued with Rankins on the sidewalk on North Avenue near West Peachtree Street around 10:45 p.m. Monday.

And moments later, witnesses said, they heard shots. They said she then "calmly walked away."
