Long before police say Arriel Bryant fatally shot Richard Kelley, there were signs the couple’s relationship was volatile according to court records obtained by 5 On Your Side Investigators.
Three times in the last seven years, Kelley was criminally charged with domestic violence against Bryant.
Investigators say Bryant shot Kelley multiple times inside the couple’s home in the 900 block of Alhambra Road on Monday night. Police say Bryant then took the couple’s two children, triggering an Amber Alert. Bryant was arrested and the children were found safe Tuesday morning
The first documented sign of problems between the couple came in December 2011 when Kelley was charged with felonious assault and domestic violence against Bryant. Court records show he pleaded guilty to attempted felonious assault and was sentenced to nine months in prison
