The criminal charges in the voluntary manslaughter case against the strip club manager charged in the death of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burrruss’ ex-fiance A.J. Jewell has been reversed:
“Following the initial announcement from the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office that Mr. Jewell’s death resulted from a sickle cell crisis, the family of the deceased expressed grave concern regarding the accuracy of the autopsy findings,” district attorney’s office spokeswoman Yvette Brown said in a statement.
“For that reason, our office enlisted the service of two additional medical experts who specialize in the area of sickle cell diagnosis and treatment.” Brown’s statement said the other medical experts concurred with the initial autopsy findings that Ashley Jewell died as a result of a sickle cell crisis.”
Jewell died on Oct. 2 2009 following a fight with Richardson outside of the Body Tap strip club near downtown.
