A woman who allegedly stabbed and killed her boyfriend in a restaurant parking lot Monday is out on bond.

Angela Yvonne Allen, 34, of Birmingham, was released from jail Wednesday after posting a $50,000 bond, Calera Police Lt. Chuck Holcomb said Thursday.

Allen, and her boyfriend, Bobby Lee Bray Jr., 28, of Brent, were traveling south on U.S. 31 Monday when a verbal dispute began in the vehicle at about 9:36 p.m.

Holcomb said Allen did not disclose details about the verbal exchange.

The couple pulled over into the Fish Market Restaurant parking lot at 4570 U.S. 31, where the altercation became physical which resulted in the male victim being stabbed,” Holcomb said.

The weapon used in the stabbing was a kitchen knife, Holcomb said.

Bray was pronounced dead at the scene, and Allen was arrested and charged with murder.
