At first, it looked like a robbery gone horribly wrong. But now an Atlanta-area DJ has been arrested in connection with his wife’s murder last month.
Tiffany Pugh, 30, was found shot to death on Nov. 23 with a young child “straddling” her chest, according to an incident report filed by East Point police.
Her husband, Andre Pugh, a.k.a. DJ Awesome, told cops that someone had broken into their home.
However, on Dec. 6, Pugh was taken into custody by authorities and charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary, booking records show.
His childhood friend, Adrian Harley, was also arrested on Saturday and cops say it was actually Harley who allegedly pulled the trigger, hired by so-called DJ Awesome to kill his wife, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Even more disturbing? Harley helped carry Tiffany’s casket at her funeral, a friend told CBS46.
A mother of two, Tiffany had reportedly been having marital problems and planned to move out, the friend, who wished to remain anonymous, told the TV station.
“On Facebook, it didn’t seem like a grieving husband,” the friend told CBS46 of Pugh, 34. “If he did it, I really hope he rots in hell.”
Pugh was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
