JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Another felony charge has been filed against the co-owner of a Mississippi restaurant who is accused of fatally shooting a man.

Greta Brown-Bully, 50, was charged Wednesday with drive-by shooting, news outlets reported. She appeared in court in Jackson via video Wednesday morning.

Brown-Bully was arrested and charged with murder last month. She's accused of fatally shooting Larry Lee, 65, police said.

Gun residue was found on both sides of Brown-Bully's vehicle and shell casings were found inside her car, Hinds County District Attorney Jody Owens said. He also said two guns were found at the scene, and investigators were still working to piece together the evidence.

Trent Walker, Brown-Bully's attorney, said he is confident his client will be vindicated when all the facts come out.

Brown-Bully and her husband, Tyrone Bully, own Bully’s Restaurant. The restaurant won a James Beard America’s Classic award in 2016.
