A grand jury indicted Latoshia Daniels, 40, on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. She remains in custody without bond. She also was indicted on the felony charge of employment of a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony.
Daniels is charged with killing Brodes Calvin Perry, 36, executive pastor of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, and wounding his wife, Tabatha Perry, 42, on April 4 at their apartment near South Houston Levee Road and Bill Morris Parkway.
An investigation showed that the Perrys knew Daniels when they lived in Little Rock and that Daniels drove to Collierville that evening to confront the pastor over his ending of their alleged relationship. She pulled a pistol from her jacket and shot Perry multiple times, repeatedly saying, “You broke my heart.”
The case is being handled by Chief Prosecutor Greg Gilbert and Asst. Dist. Atty. Glenda Adams of the DA’s Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit (DVPU) which prosecutes felony cases of domestic assault and homicide committed by intimate partners. The Unit also works closely with the Shelby County Family Safety Center to provide services and assistance to victims and their families.
