Mom sues Club 5150 over death of daughter, Ashley Brown



The mother of a woman gunned down in an Augusta nightclub last year is suing the club, its owners and the two men charged with the homicide of Ashley Brown.

The suit filed June 6 asks to award Beverly Robinson for the “full value” of Brown’s life at a price to be determined by a jury. Brown was 26 when she was fatally shot in the head Sept. 15 outside Club 5150 at 2864 Deans Bridge Road.

In October a prosecutor at a bond hearing said a fight involving Robert Leverett Wright and Dachavous Murphy broke out at the club that night. The pair left the club and returned minutes later; Wright was driving, and Murphy fired from the car’s window at a crowd, Assistant District Attorney John O’Neal said.

One of the bullets hit Brown, who was celebrating a friend’s birthday that night.

The lawsuit names Murphy and Wright as defendants, along with club co-owners Chartara Newman, Tavaras Jones and the property owner, William E. Walker III. It accuses them of negligence, nuisance, negligent homicide and wrongful death.
