A popular pastor threatened his wife a day before he fatally shot her outside the Florida credit union where she worked.

The threat was made in a chilling video that shows Ghanian Pastor Sylvester Ofori arguing with his wife, Barbara Tommey's sister and brother-in-law the day before he killed her on Sept. 8.

During the argument, Ofori told Tommey's brother-in-law that another pastor told him his sister was a witch. "Name the pastor!" the brother-in-law said, as Ofori walked away.

Seconds later, Ofori told the man, "If I don't kill your sister, know that I am fake."

The brother-in-law told Tommey to pack her things, while Tommey's sister, who was recording the video, told her to leave the house.

"Death is death. You can not replace life with death," said Tommey's sister, who provided a copy of the video to police.

Tommey's sister and brother-in-law told police the couple was in the midst of divorcing.

Later that evening, Ofori wrote in a post on Facebook: "One thing people gotta understand about extremely kind, nice, loving people, is that their other side is just as extreme."

The next morning, Ofori ambushed Tommey and shot her multiple times outside the front doors of the Navy Federal Credit Union on the 4600 block of Gardens Park Boulevard in Orlando, just before 9 a.m..

The murder was captured on CCTV. Ofori is seen holding a gun as Tommey walked up and knocked on the door of the credit union.

He approached her and shot her at point blank range. When she collapsed on the ground Ofori shot her in the head several more times.

"You can tell that she was surprised by what was happening," police chief Orlando Rolon said.

"You can tell she's trying to get inside. Unfortunately, he shoots her."

Ofori, 35, was taken into custody at his apartment and charged with first-degree murder.

Ofori described himself as a prophet and motivational speaker on Facebook. He was a pastor at Floodgates of Heaven International Ministries in the Parramore neighborhood of Orlando.

He is being held at the Orange County Jail without bond.

Leaked audio allegedly reveals Bow Wow physically abused his pregnant ex-girlfriend Kiyomi Leslie, born Leslie Holden.

The former couple was arrested after a brawl in her apartment in February 2019 during Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta.

Leaked audio proves the diminutive ex-rapper kicked Holden in the stomach while she was pregnant.

"This man hit me in my stomach," Holden tells someone in the clip. The person replies, "He knows she's pregnant why hit her in her stomach?"

In another audio clip, a male voice, believed to be Bow Wow, says "She don't know who she f***ing with... She think I'm playing?!"

"I want to leave," Holden says on the tape. "You can't break something you ain't make. I ain't nobody so let me leave. If I'm not nobody so let me leave. I'm nobody, but you got me in this room like a f***ing prisoner. Why can't I leave? I gotta fight you to get out the room?"

Bow Wow replies. "I guess so."

Following her arrest in 2019, Holden tweeted that she was pregnant and she lost the fetus due to the abuse.

She added Bow Wow's mother Teresa Caldwell knew about the abuse and did nothing to stop it.

"His weak ass momma called me sounding all concerned that her son beat me. TERESA KNEW her son beat me numerous times and still got on national television to lie... YOU LUCKY MY MOMMA RAISED ME TO RESPECT WOMEN BECAUSE WHEEEEEW ! Trashhhhh."

Bryshere Y. Gray was arrested Monday at his Arizona home after a domestic dispute with his wife escalated to violence.

Gray was charged with assault after he strangled his wife until she lost consciousness.

The 26-year-old actor was taken into custody hours after he barricaded himself inside his home on Sunday night.

The incident happened around 10:15 p.m. Sunday when Goodyear police responded to a 911 call from a woman at a Circle K gas station.

The woman told police her husband, the actor Bryshere Y. Gray, had assaulted her for hours and choked her until she passed out at their Goodyear home.

The woman reportedly had "numerous visible injuries" on her body, according to PEOPLE. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she received treatment for her injuries and was discharged.

Police responded to the Gray residence located at the 13000 block of S. 176th Lane, and attempted to speak with Gray, but he refused to come outside.

Police called out the Goodyear SWAT team and Crisis Negotiations to assist them. The standoff ended just after 7 a.m. Monday, when Gray was taken into custody without incident.

He was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on domestic assault and disorderly conduct charges. His mugshot was posted on the Goodyear police Facebook page.

Gray, pictured with Empire castmate Jussie Smollett, began his career as a rapper at age 16. Using the stage name Yazz The Greatest, he performed at music festivals in the Philadelphia area, including Jay Z's Made in America Festival.

He got his big break when he was cast to play Hakeem Lyon on Fox TV's Empire in 2015. The series was canceled earlier this year after six seasons.

Being cooped up in the house for three months on quarantine is taking a toll on many couples who suddenly realize they don't really like each other.

Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna's wife hit him in the face with a soap dish during a verbal argument that got out of hand.

Ozuna suffered a facial injury when his wife Genesis threw a soap dish at him a couple of weeks ago.

Medics were called to the scene where they treated a "small laceration" on Ozuna's face.

Ozuna drove himself to a police station to file a police report on his wife.

Genesis pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and was given a stay away order.

Rumor has it that Genesis suspects Ozuna of cheating on her during the coronavirus quarantine.

The Braves are among the teams preparing to take the field when Major League Baseball resumes its season this summer.

A New Mexico cop was arrested in full uniform while on duty, and charged with aggravated battery on his wife.

According to the arrest warrant, former Officer Jeffrey Wharton beat his wife so badly, she was hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage and multiple facial injuries.

Some of the violence was captured on the couple's Ring doorbell camera.

When Wharton arrived to work, he was met by Rio Rancho police detectives with a felony warrant for his arrest.

Female officers systematically stripped Wharton of his police issued weapon, gun belt and gear. The entire arrest and booking were captured on body cam video.

The video, dated Feb. 22, shows Wharton surrounded by officers before the change of shift. He was advised that they had a warrant for his arrest for domestic violence.

To further humiliate him -- and to drive home the point that he is a disgrace to his uniform -- another officer took a pair of scissors and cut Wharton's uniform off of him while his hands were cuffed behind him.

Wharton was transported to the Sandoval County Detention Center and booked on 2 felony counts of aggravated battery on a household member, kidnapping first-degree, aggravated battery against a household member (strangulation or suffocation), tampering with evidence and negligent use of a deadly weapon (unsafe handling).

Wharton resigned from the police force shortly after his arrest. He is awaiting trial.

Yung Berg, who has a history of putting his hands on women, is crying foul over the latest allegation that he brutally pistol-whipped his "girlfriend" and broke her nose.

In response to the media coverage, Berg, real name Christian Ward, who also goes by Hitmaka, posted a statement from his lawyer on Instagram.com on Tuesday.

According to Ward's lawyer, Talia Tilley is not the rapper's girlfriend. She arrived at Ward's house around 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, March 14. Ward's lawyer said Tilley knew the layout of his house and the grounds.

Although it was late and 50-degrees outside, Tilley talked Ward into taking a dip in the Jacuzzi. After some physical intimacy, Tilley made a "calculated, unprovoked attack on Ward, slapping and punching him repeatedly," according to Ward's legal team.

Ward defended himself by retrieving a gun and delivering some street justice to his alleged attacker (Tilley).

In the middle of the assault by Tilley, Ward's ADT home alarm sounded at the back door. A Ring camera captured footage of two armed men jumping the back fence into Ward's yard and attempting to breach the back door. They were unsuccessful because of a heavy chain and lock on the door. Then the gunmen went around to the front of the house and tried to kick in the front door.

During the attempted home invasion, Ward glanced at Tilley's cell phone screen and noticed she was "sharing her location with an unknown person." The person was "calling and texting her before, during, and after this attempted home invasion robbery," the lawyer wrote.

Ward provided security videos and phone records to the LAPD to assist in their investigation of Tilley and the home invaders.

Steven Spielberg's troubled daughter Mikaela Spielberg feels "betrayed" after she was arrested for domestic violence assault on her 47-year-old fiancé.

Nashville police say Mikaela Spielberg, 23, threw objects at her fiancé, Chuck, during an argument at their home early Saturday.

Mikaela says she felt betrayed because she's the one who called police to get medical assistance for her fiancé, who received a minor injury from the flying objects.

"I am personally very heartbroken and I feel betrayed because I called for medical assistance," she said.

Mikaela said the argument escalated after Chuck made a "rude" comment about her, according to Rhymeswithsnitch.

Responding officers noted a "fresh and recent" injury on Chuck's hand and a swollen wrist.

Police determined Mikaela was the aggressor after she allegedly made conflicting comments, according to the arrest document.

Domestic violence is a misdemeanor under Tennessee law.

In most jurisdictions, the combatant without fresh injuries is taken to jail and booked. The laws were changed after men were being disproportionately arrested when the female was the actual aggressor in some cases.

Milwaukee police cancelled an Amber Alert after a mother and her 2 daughters were found dead inside a garage, a week after they were reported missing.

Police found the bodies of Amarah Banks, 26, and her daughters Camaria Banks, 4, and Zaniya Ivery, 5, in a garage on Sunday morning. The Amber Alert had been issued the day before - when Milwaukee police already knew they were deceased.

Banks's boyfriend and Zaniya's father, Arzel Ivery, provided information that led police to the bodies in the garage.

Ivery, 25, was charged with aggravated battery for allegedly assaulting Banks at her apartment on Saturday, Feb. 8, the day she and her children went missing.

On Friday, Feb. 7, Banks and her family attended the funeral for her 21-month-old son, Arzel Ivery Jr., who died of complications from bronchitis, according to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office.

Ivery told police he went to Banks's apartment after the funeral on Saturday, and he and Banks got into an argument, according to the criminal complaint.

Banks' next-door neighbor said she heard a commotion that sounded like someone slamming a person against the wall. The neighbor told police she heard a woman screaming "No, no, I didn't even do anything," and "don't kill me, don't kill me!"

The neighbor said she heard a man's voice accusing the woman of cheating on him.

Another witness told police she saw Banks running through the apartment building parking lot barefoot, wearing a funeral t-shirt and bleeding from the mouth. She reported seeing the woman's boyfriend grab her and drag her back inside the apartment building, according to the criminal complaint.

The second witness also told police she heard the woman screaming "No, no, please don't kill me!"

Someone called 911 to report a disturbance, but responding officers reported being unable to locate the 911 caller or any disturbance.

Banks' family reported her and her daughters missing on Sunday, Feb. 9. According to Milwaukee police call logs obtained by WISN 12 News, police conducted a welfare check at Banks' apartment, but no one was at home.

Police observed what appeared to be 2 small droplets of blood on a bed, and damage to a bedroom wall as if a person's head impacted the wall.

On Thursday, Feb. 13, Banks' brother contacted WISN 12 News seeking help finding his missing sister and his 2 nieces.

On Thursday, WISN 12 News asked Milwaukee police about the missing persons report via email. A Milwaukee police official told WISN 12 News the case was still under investigation, but it was "not a critical missing" persons case.

WISN 12 News interviewed Banks' family members who begged the public for help finding her.

On Saturday, Feb. 15, at 3:41 a.m. in Memphis, Tennessee, Ivery flagged down an officer to talk about "the incident in Milwaukee." Memphis officers arrested Ivery and contacted Milwaukee police who told them about his connection to a missing persons case.

Later that day, Milwaukee police issued an Amber Alert for Banks and her daughters - a week after they were first reported missing.

On Sunday, Feb. 16, officers conducted a search of a garage at a home in the 4700 block of West Burleigh Street in Milwaukee. The Amber Alert was cancelled after the 3 bodies were found.

Ivery was charged with aggravated assault. He waived extradition back to Milwaukee to face charges. His last known address is on the same block where the bodies were found, according to WISN 12 News.

After turning himself in to police on Tuesday, Davis took to Snapchat to explain the error of his ways. Davis acknowledged his privileged "high-class" status and how easy it would be to lose everything he worked so hard for.

"We some poor big-class n*ggas we made it we rich!... BE CAREFUL WITH THE DECISION YOU MAKE..ONE MISTAKE CAN MESS UP EVERYTHING..I'M LEARNING."

Prior to his arrest, Davis addressed the incident during an Instagram story, saying he didn't assault his baby mama - he simply corrected her when she talked back to him and showed out in public.

"I never once hit her, yeah, I was aggressive and told her come on.. that's the mother of my child. I would never hurt her," Davis said.

Many women criticized Davis' method of discipline. But others say when a man pays all of a woman's bills and expenses, it is her duty to respect him in public.

Davis is undefeated as a professional boxer.
