McDONOUGH, Georgia (AP) — Music producer Demetrius Lee Stewart, known as Shawty Redd, is scheduled to appear in a suburban Atlanta court on a murder charge.

Stewart has been held without bond in the Henry County jail since his New Year’s Day arrest. He is accused of shooting 35-year-old Damon A. Martin of Detroit in an argument at Stewart’s home in Hampton, about 30 miles southeast of Atlanta.

He is scheduled to make his first court appearance before Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero on Tuesday. Marcia Fuller, who is listed as Stewart’s lawyer, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

The 28-year-old Stewart has worked with Young Jeezy, Snoop Dogg and other major artists.
