A 32-year-old Dora woman has been charged in the early Saturday morning slaying of her boyfriend, Jefferson County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Randy Christian said.
Emily Leach is accused of shooting and killing David Frye in the 9300 block of Pineview Road in the Dora area, according to Christian. She has been charged with murder and is being held on a $60,000 bond in the Jefferson County Jail, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department website.
Frye and Leach lived together, Christian said in a news release. Deputies responded to a call at 3:40 a.m., and when they got there, they found Frye lying on the floor with a gunshot wound.
He was taken to UAB hospital where he later died.
