FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Allen County Prosecutors have filed a formal murder charge against Kennisha Jackson, who was accused of shooting a man during an argument last week.

Police say the argument at 2827 Abbott St. was a dispute about money.

Jackson was given a preliminary charge of aggravated battery following the shooting of 19-year-old Diquan Meriwether on Jan. 14.

Police say Jackson told investigators Meriwether pulled a gun on her, dropped it and then she picked it up and shot him.

Jackson was then put on a 72-hour hold at the Allen County Jail leading up to the official hearing on Tuesday.
