A metro Atlanta police detective said in court that a Gwinnett County man fatally shot his stepdaughter during an argument over a delayed tax return.

Multiple news outlets report Gwinnett County Police Detective Shannon Kulnis said in court Tuesday that 42-year-old Byron Winborne and Kysha Johnson had been arguing over a delayed tax return when the woman was shot on March 24.

WXIA-TV quotes Kulnis as saying (http://on.11alive.com/1MbKpc6) that Winborne confessed to grabbing a gun and shooting Johnson as she walked away from him. Johnson was taken to a hospital and was later pronounced dead.

Winborne was charged with felony murder and aggravated assault in the woman’s death. Gwinnett County jail records say he’s being held without bond.
