Huntsville woman accepts plea deal in fatal 2019 shooting

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A 26-year-old Huntsville woman who was set to stand trial for murder has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter, online court documents show.

Mieisha Robinson was charged with murder in 2019 in connection with the shooting death of 27-year-old Kevin Michale Fouse at the Highland Apartments near Sparkman Drive.

According to the plea agreement, Robinson entered a “best interests plea of ​​guilty to the crime of manslaughter as amended from the original charge of murder.”

In 2019, Huntsville police told News 19 that Fouse was shot following a dispute over property.

According to AL.com, this property was a car that Fouse sold to Robinson.

Fouse, his girlfriend and his 8-year-old daughter had driven to Robinson’s residence where he planned to demand full payment for the vehicle or take it back.

Huntsville Police Detective Michael DeNoon testified at a preliminary hearing in August 2019. DeNoon said an argument ensued when Fouse confronted Robinson and his girlfriend about the vehicle.

In the AL.com article, Fouse said Robinson’s girlfriend was recording the argument on a cellphone. This video showed Robinson telling Fouse to hit her, but he didn’t.

Robinson then pulls out a gun and points it at Fouse’s head, according to DeNoon.

Cell phone video was covered, but the sound of a gunshot could be heard. When the target was discovered, Fouse could be seen lying on the ground, DeNoon said.

He had been shot between the eyes.

Fouse’s girlfriend was also shot, injuring her finger and grating her head.

Robinson was indicted by a Madison County grand jury in August 2021.

Because Robinson requested a pre-sentence report, a sentencing hearing was adjourned to September 19, with the state probation office conducting a pre-sentence hearing before that hearing took place.
