After the dispute, Roby left the bar and drove to a gas station in Markham, just outside of Chicago. Washington allegedly followed Roby to the gas station where he fatally shot her. Washington has been charged with first degree murder of Roby, and also with parental abduction of Roby's two children. According to police, Washington picked up Roby's two small children after the alleged murder.
An Amber Alert was issued for the two children, one of whom is Washington's, and they were eventually found at the home of his relative. A judge issued no bond on Saturday, and it is reported that Washington's attorney is planning to contest the allegations against him.
