Families clash at courthouse

Posted: Updated:

Tempers flared outside the courthouse after Ronald Boaston faced a judge.

Ronald Boaston's sister says she was upset when she interrupted an interview with the sister of murder victim Brandi Gonyer-Boaston.

Police say Ronald Boaston killed his ex-wife in the 1100 block of Amanda Circle in Toledo, then left her body in a running car in Fulton County.

Her mother is glad there's an arrest. "She was amazing. She was my daughter. I loved her. It's not closure. He took from me what I can't get back."

Her sister Deanna Jones says Brandi was a great mom. "She loved her job and her kids were her life."

The suspect's family says Ronald and Brandi had a troubled relationship. His sister Rose said,  "My brother is innocent. My brother is a good person. He goes to work to take care of his kids."

She says she just wants her brother to have a fair trial. "I want the courts to find my brother innocent or guilty.  You understand what I'm saying, To my process he's innocent, you understand what I'm saying and let the courts decide what's going to happen. I love my brother"

Boaston's bond was set at $1 million dollars.
