Erika Sutelman has been charged with murder after she admitted to killing her boyfriend, David Moholland, but claimed they were just "playing around."
According to police in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Sutelman shot Moholland in the chest with a 12-gauge shotgun at an apartment where they were staying on Monday.
“Sutelman told officers she had a brown and black Mossburg 12-gauge shotgun in her hands as she and Moholland were playing around in the apartment,” reported WYFF-TV. “Sutelman said she thought the safety was in the on position, so she pulled the trigger and the gun fired a single shot at Moholland.”
Police officers tried to save Moholland, but he died at the scene.
The police report said that another unidentified couple was in the apartment during the shooting, but were in another room when it happened.
