Scandal and a senseless killing have rocked the city of Macon, Georgia, and the family of the late Otis Redding. Brandon Parker, 33, the grandson of Redding, was shot by his girlfriend Tracia Yvonne Hubbard, 48.

The incident allegedly started at the popular Tic Toc Room restaurant in downtown Macon where the couple engaged in a loud and public argument. Anonymous sources have stated that the fight had to do with Parker getting ready to receive his first church and when were they going to get married. Parker was set to take over as pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Macon. His grandfather, Rev. Jacob Parker, had recently retired after 49 years of service and the church was making official preparations for a change in leadership.

The couple was reportedly arguing at Hubbard’s home later that night around 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning. It was then, according to police, that Hubbard exited the house, went to her car and retrieved a .380-caliber revolver. She then went back into the home and shot Parker in the neck and he stumbled outside. When Bibb County investigators arrived, Hubbard was attempting CPR, but Parker was dead. Hubbard was arrested for murder and is being held at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center without bond.

A family member reported a troubled relationship where it is alleged that Hubbard may have been the victim of domestic abuse. Hubbard’s niece, Joslyn Clayton, is quoted as saying, “There was actually a history of domestic abuse that a lot of people didn’t know about. She had broken bones and was on crutches a couple of months ago after he pushed her off a porch.”

Police, however, have no records of abuse from either Parker or Hubbard and some were surprised at the allegations. Some have described Hubbard, who was 15 years older than Parker, as a “cougar” who was preying on a younger man. When it became obvious that Parker was going to become the leader of a church, she wanted to be the first lady. But some are saying that Parker did not want to marry Hubbard and the relationship reached a boiling point that resulted in tragedy.
