Adina Parson, the attorney who was shot 8 times -- 3 times in the head -- was transferred to Shepherd Center where she will undergo rehab to improve her quality of life.

Parson's husband, Michael Parson, is accused of shooting his wife with the intent to kill.

Parson, 40, was shot as she left the Residences of Morgan Falls Apartments, off Roswell Road, around 11:45 p.m. on April 20. She was reportedly heading to pick up her husband from work.

Sandy Springs police initially said Michael Parson was not a suspect in the shooting. But Parson, who was cooperative at the start of the investigation, later refused to answer questions after holes developed in his story.

Parson remains in a Texas jail where he has been since he was stopped by the Texas Highway Patrol just before midnight Saturday. He was apprehended one day after Sandy Springs police issued a warrant for his arrest.

"He was taken into custody without incident," said Capt. Steve Rose of Sandy Springs police.

Rose said Monday that a grand jury was scheduled to consider an indictment on Friday, "however, that date could be moved up as soon as Tuesday."

Friends of Adina Parson say her husband was among friends and family visiting Adina at Grady Memorial Hospital in the days following the shooting.

But he soon stopped showing up at her bedside.

According to the AJC, Michael Parson will be charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, giving false statements in writing concealing the facts of a felony, and fleeing to avoid prosecution.

Shepherd Center, formally Shepherd Spinal Center, is world-renowned for its neurological and spinal disorders research, surgery and rehabilitation.

      I suspected the husband from the beginning. He was the only person who knew she'd be leaving the apartment at that exact time. I sweater God I don't want a fatal attraction relationship.

      Wow,as we were trying not to be negative because he was 'sick',he was the one that did it? Shephard is the best place for her. Darryl chill Williams went there after his spinal cord injury from that motorcycle injury in NC.

    • http://Www.yallaintchit.com Man, I just don’t care™

      So why they think this dude did it? All I saw was that he stopped showing up to her bedside.

      I mean, I know thats more than enough to convict a black man in most cases but Im sure they at least acted like they had a motive.

      And is it just me, but do they look like they could be brother and sister?

      a) he told the police she was picking him from work. b) he didn't have a job. c) the gunman knew exactly what time she was leaving the apartment. I would convict him just off of that evidence. But I'm sure the Sandy Springs police have much more.

      Thats not good evidence at all. :no:
      Thats his wife, of course he knows her schedule.
      And not being employed and not having a
      job are two different things. He could have been doing "handy man" work or some sort of labor for someone. Just miscommunication on the part of the pigs.

      Although him being married to her ad being
      black was enough for an arrest warrant. Prolly enough for a conviction. But the pigs should at least give a better reason than that.

      wow, why isnt he charged with murder? I will pray for her.

    • Ms.kaylamomma

      @Ididn'treally The reason he isn't charged with "murder" is because she isn't dead.

    • ShoeStalker

      @ Sandra:
      Which makes absolutely no sense.. he should have known from the jump that he would not see one red cent of the money if he was involved in the crime... smh

    • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

      @ ShoeStalker: it takes a complete lack of empathy to kill another human being. Along with that goes his ability to reason and use logic. An empathetic person would have simply asked for a divorce so he could move on with his life. But this guy is an animal who only wanted his needs gratified by killing her and getting her out of his way.

    • prima_donna2163

      To shoot her 8 times signifies jealousy and/or hatred to me....not in the sense of jealous of another man, but jealous as in maybe she was too well-rounded, independent, and too much woman for him. When a man's ego is flatlined, no telling how far he'll go. Hoping for a full recovery for her!

    • Melissa Niice

      Oh my, this is so sad! Yes, auntie that hospital is the best for spinal cord injury....I hope she is not paralyze, someone that is dear to me got treatment there and I must say the staff and Doctors are amazing!

      And how do we know the gunman knew the schedule again?

      Wouldnt her coworkers know it as well? Or is it possible it was a coicidence? They still dont talk about motive so who knows?

      Seem like the pigs would have more evidence and a motive if it was the husband. I mean this dude is basically arrested for knowing his own wife's schedule. Thats good enough. SMH.

      This has the feel of "We-have-to-arrest-somebody" type thing to it.

    • http://www.philly.com/ J Said it!

      He should be charged with attempt murder.. this dummy i knew it was him all the while!!! whats up with this weak insecured men, taking women lives and sometimes their own..

      IT SPEAKS VOLUMES, CAN YOU SAY MYSOGINIST AND PROBABLY EXPLAINS WHY THE ONLY POSITIVE REFERENCES YOU MAKE TO WOMEN TYPICALLY INVOLVES THEIR BODY PARTS OR THEIR ABILITY TO PERFORM A SEXUAL ACT

      UMMM-HE'S BEING ACCUSED SIMPLY BECAUSE HE MORE THAN LIKELY COMMITTED THE CRIME BASED ON THE EVIDENCE THE POLICE HAVE COLLECTED

      MORE PEOPLE ARE KILLED BY PEOPLE THEY KNOW THAN RANDOM STRANGERS AND IT'S EVEN A HIGHER CHANCE THAT THE KILLER IS A SPOUSE OR PERSON YOU'VE BEEN ROMANTICALLY INVOLVED WITH
