The scene was the parking lot of Tilly’s Pub, according to The IndyStar.
Morris told a witness she tracked down Smith using an Apple AirTag and GPS, the probable cause affidavit reportedly stated.
She found him at the bar with another woman, authorities said. She allegedly claimed Smith was her boyfriend and cheating on her.
Morris allegedly picked up an empty wine bottle and swung it at the other woman, but Smith intervened, catching it. All three were allegedly asked to leave.
The situation allegedly escalated in tragic fashion after Morris and Smith left the bar and the other woman stayed inside for a food order.

Morris allegedly stepped out of her vehicle before going after the other woman, but cops detained her.
Local prosecutors will make a final charging decision, officers said. Morris is held in the Marion County Jail for murder, online records show. Court is scheduled for Tuesday.
