A woman is under arrest for sending threatening text messages to a rapper 24 hours before he was slain by an unknown assailant, the Atlanta Journal reports.

Yung Teddy was found shot to death at his Austell home last Wednesday night. Police say Yachari Kiyana Miller sent the threatening texts to the victim on Tuesday, saying, “You a dead man walking” and “This your year to die.”

He was last seen wearing a gray sweater, dark pants and a black beanie hat. The second suspect is described as a black man between 5-4 and 5-6. He had a navy blue bandana covering his face and was wearing a multicolored beanie hat, according to the AJC.
