A 41-year-old man was arrested and charged with criminal homicide in connection with a woman found shot to death on a sidewalk in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Investigators said Donte Moss was arrested and is being held at the Allegheny County Jail.

The woman was found dead just after 12:30 a.m. in the 400 block of Linnview Avenue. Police said she had been shot in the head.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the woman as 38-year-old Nalene R. Harrell. Harrell and Moss were allegedly dating.

According to a criminal complaint, Moss said they were driving home from an event when he pulled their car over — and Harrell then got out and shot herself in the head.

However, the medical examiner told officers the bullet was fired from a gun from a minimum distance of 3.5 feet. That led to Moss facing the charges of criminal homicide.
