A judge heard enough to move forward with the charges of murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during a felony against Michael Williams, Atlanta's WSB-TV reported.
Williams is accused of shooting and killing 37-year-old Sutton Tennyson, the ex-fiancé of reality television star Angela Simmons.
He turned himself in Nov. 8 after being wanted in connection with the Nov. 3 shooting. He was also denied bond at his first appearance.
Tennyson was found with multiple gunshot wounds inside an open garage on Jewel Drive in an upscale southwest Atlanta community, Atlanta police said. The suspect drove away after the fatal shooting, according to police.
Police Detective Darrin Smith said during the hearing that a license plate reader near the scene of the shooting helped identify Williams as the suspect. It had a hit on a 2013 BMW that was registered to Williams, WSB-TV reported.
When officers found the car at his home, Smith said, the tag was missing.
Officers also found guns at the home, but didn’t find the gun used to shoot Tennyson, Smith said.
Williams’ attorney, Jackie Patterson, told the news station that those weapons were owned by the suspect’s wife.
Patterson also said during the hearing that Williams had previously been convicted of manslaughter.
Police said a witness — a contractor who had been discussing a job with Tennyson — is important to the case. The contractor said that before the shooting, a man drove up and got in an argument with the victim, saying Tennyson owed him money, WSB-TV reported.
Tennyson had a child with Simmons, the daughter of Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons, one of the founding members of legendary rap group Run-DMC. She is the niece of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and appears on WE-TV’s “Growing Up Hip Hop.”

Joe Perry has canceled his fall tour to take time off after recently being hospitalized with breathing problems.
The Aerosmith guitarist's publicist said in a statement Tuesday the 68-year-old will take the rest of the year off. He had expected to return to the road starting Nov. 30 through Dec. 16.
Perry felt short of breath after a guest performance with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden in New York. Paramedics backstage gave Perry oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to the hospital.
Perry had joined the 69-year-old Joel on stage for a rendition of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."
Perry says he apologizes to fans who planned to attend his shows. He expects to return next year.
President Donald Trump is suggesting he might attend next year's White House Correspondents Dinner now that the event is no longer featuring a comedian.
Trump tweeted Tuesday night: "So-called comedian Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year at the White House Correspondents' Dinner that this year, for the first time in decades, they will have an author instead of a comedian. Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go?"
The White House Correspondents' Association announced Monday that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow would address its annual dinner next year following the pushback over Wolf's sharply anti-Trump performance last time.
Presidents traditionally attend the dinner, but Trump has skipped it for two straight years.
The dance floor is thinning over at ABC.
The Nielsen company says viewership is down for ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" franchise, which concluded its fall season on Monday with country radio host Bobby Bones beating Disney star Milo Manheim, actress Evanna Lynch and model Alexis Ren.
Each episode averaged 8.2 million viewers the night that it aired and during the week afterward, down 22 percent from last year's average of 10.4 million, Nielsen said. The show was once a routine top 10 performer for ABC, but last week's semi-finals finished out of the top 20. A figure for Monday's finale was not immediately available.
In better news for ABC, the Rosanne Barr-less sitcom "The Conners" has turned into a solid prime-time performer. Its ratings don't measure up to last year's "Roseanne" revival, but last week's episode was the third most-watched comedy on television, behind CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" and its spinoff, "Young Sheldon"
Among the 18-to-49-year-old audience that ABC watches most closely, "The Conners" ranked No. 15 last week, Nielsen said. Only "Grey's Anatomy" and the annual CMA awards had more young viewers on ABC last week, Nielsen said.
For the second straight week, talk show host Alec Baldwin was pre-empted, this time replaced by "Shark Tank" reruns. ABC has said the show will switch from Sunday to Saturday night — often the television version of one step closer to cancellation.

Martha Stewart's first Uber ride was not a good thing.
Stewart ordered the "most expensive version" Monday outside Tiffany's flagship store in New York City. As Stewart explained on Instagram , she wanted to be picked up on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street.
Stewart wrote the first car did not show up and the second parked "halfway down" the street where she "could not see the license plate." That car was pointed in the wrong direction, delaying her journey as the car snaked through midtown Manhattan traffic.
But the worst part was the car "was a mess inside and out!!!!!!!!" She posted a picture that showed debris on the floor and two water bottles.
Uber says it was disappointed to hear about Stewart's first experience and has reached out to her and her team.
