Takydra West

Takydra S. West is charged with killing Karyia S. Edmondson at the Bainbridge Apartment Complex,  900 East Armour Boulevard.

West and her victim were inside an apartment on Monday when the two got into a fight, witnesses said.

West choked the victim and placed a gun against her neck but then left, according to court records, and later returned and shot her.

West told witnesses “Ya better not snitch” and pointed a gun at them, records state. West told a witness she shot Edmondson because the victim wanted to return items they had obtained during a robbery.

Prosecutors requested a cash bond of $500,000.
