Man accused of killing girlfriend on Halloween due in court

(WMC-TV) – The man accused of killing his girlfriend at a Shelby County apartment complex is due in court on Monday. Xavier Becton is charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of Tierria Sims.

According to the affidavit, sheriff's deputies responded to the Preserves of Southwind Apartments in the 3800 block of Inverness on Halloween night.

They found Sims shot to death. Becton apparently called police and told them he and Smith were struggling, when the gun went off.

Police found the weapon on him.
