Flint man accused of beating to death his 27-year-old girlfriend in Red Roof Inn
The domestic violence in the Red Roof Inn wound up like a thriller movie and ended up with death of a 27-year-old woman.
It happened at 3219 Miller Road. The officers with Flint Township Police Department were called to the report of domestic violence to find 51-year-old Carmen Ballard covered in blood. It wasn’t his blood. Investigators say that later it became clear that it was Ballard’s 27-year-old girlfriend’s blood.
The woman was found unconscious hidden in the bathtub, according to the Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office. She was immediately rushed to the hospital, but unfortunately she couldn’t make it and passed. The prosecutor David Leyton believes that she died of the injuries caused by Ballard.
27-year-old woman left behind a young child.
Leyton called the incident “one of the worst” case of domestic violence he’s ever seen.
In the room, police also found several syringes from heroin and cocaine usage.
"I just wish that folks would reach out for help," Leyton said. "When somebody is in a domestic violence situation, there is help available."
Ballard has been charged with four other felonies in the last six months.
