Neighbors told authorities they heard some commotion from the apartment that evening and saw Edwards climb out of a second-story window wearing nothing but plaid boxer shorts, the Mornings News reported. Edwards then fell into some bushes below and was chased down by officers, according to their account.
Edwards was arrested and charged with capital murder and aggravated assault of a family member with a deadly weapon. His bail was set at $1.75 million. It wasn’t immediately clear what led up to the attack.
