Posted: Updated:

TROY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a Missouri woman who is charged with fatally shooting her boyfriend reported that he had assaulted her.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 49-year-old Angela Medici is jailed on $300,000 bond on first-degree murder and armed criminal action charges in the death of 63-year-old Keith Sweetin. Deputies responded around 3 a.m. Monday to the couple's home east of Troy and found him dead.

A witness called 911 to report Sweeting assaulting Medici; the witness then reported seeing Medici shoot Sweetin in the head.

Charging documents say Medici told investigators she was "angry" with Sweetin and "that she could have and should have left the residence, however chose not to." She said he had assaulted her earlier that morning. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.
