Justin Wright, the Atlanta man accused of shooting his girlfriend on Mother's Day, waived his preliminary hearing Thursday.

Wilanna S. Bibbs, 20, of Durham North Carolina, was pronounced dead by Davenport Fire and Medic after police responded to the 1500 block of Calvin Street for a disturbance on May 9.

Wright, 31, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Bibbs' mother, Cassandra Bibbs, said Bibbs and Wright had been dating for a few months. They met in Atlanta, where Bibbs moved to launch a singing career. Wright, also known as J Wright, is a multi-platinum songwriter in Atlanta.

Wright's next court date was scheduled for 11 a.m. June 10.
