Ex-boyfriend indicted in killing of woman who owned Anger Room

Police said Nathaniel Mitchell broke into Donna Alexander's home on Sept. 21 and beat her, leaving her with fatal injuries. Alexander, a mother of two, was pronounced dead three days later.

The ex-boyfriend of a woman who had owned a popular Deep Ellum business has been indicted on a murder charge in her death, the Tarrant County district attorney's office announced.

Nathaniel Mitchell is accused of killing Donna Alexander, the owner of the Anger Room, which allowed visitors to destroy household and workplace items as a way to relieve stress.

Police said Mitchell broke into Alexander's home in Grand Prairie on Sept. 21 and beat her, leaving her with fatal injuries. Alexander, a mother of two, was pronounced dead three days later.

Her family told WFAA that her relationship with Mitchell had been toxic and that she had kicked him out of her home shortly before her death.

"She was praying for God to fix him," her sister, Lauren Armour, said.

Mitchell was indicted on charges of murder, burglary with the intent to commit aggravated assault and burglary with intent to commit assault. He has remained in custody at the Tarrant County jail with his bail set at $250,000.

As of Dec. 1, the Anger Room in Deep Ellum remained closed, according to a post on the business' Facebook page.
