    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A mother shot and killed her daughter’s fiancé after an argument in DeKalb County, authorities said. 

    The shooting happened on Oct. 8 at an apartment complex on East Ponce de Leon Avenue.

    Paw Law, 57, is accused of shooting Nyatole Eh, 17, of Clarkston, several times in the abdomen. 


    Police said Law was upset because her daughter, who is several months pregnant with Eh's child, was about to move to Wisconsin with her fiancé.

    Police said the family had an argument over the issue Saturday.

    "It appears mom had been planning this and was that adamant that she did not want her leaving with him," said Clarkston Police Detective Jason Elliot.

    Detectives said Law left the house, bought a revolver from a local pawn shop and then police say slept on her decision.

    "It appears they were in the kitchen preparing breakfast. There was no type argument or even altercation. It's looking like mom just walked up behind the victim and shot him,” Elliot said.

    Law's daughter, Madaya Be, became emotional talking with Channel 2 Action News about Eh and said it's been hard on both families.

    "It was surprising I never thought something like this was going to happen," Be said. "He's a very good, innocent guy."

    Law was arrested later at her home and taken to the DeKalb County Jail.
