A Marietta woman accused of stabbing, strangling and beating her brother-in-law to death was indicted by a Cobb County grand jury on 10 counts related to the April 5 slaying, court records show.

Shamona Moneake Price, 33, was arrested after police discovered the body of her brother-in-law Justin Williams, 27, in his Marietta duplex, located along Hammondton Road near Osborne High School, said Sgt. Dana Pierce, spokesman for Cobb police.

According to the indictment handed down Thursday, Price allegedly killed Williams by hitting him with a gun, repeatedly stabbing him and strangling him with an electrical cord inside his Marietta home. Warrants in the case allege that at some point she also dropped a large television on his head.

Price was picked up in Fulton County that evening and charged with Williams’ murder.

She was indicted on one count of malice murder, three counts of felony murder, four counts of aggravated assault and one count each of possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony and possessing a knife during the commission of a felony.

She remains held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center, jail records show.
