ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul man is accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend while she sat in the back of an SUV with their infant son.
Nineteen-year-old Timothy Hendricks is charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1gHA7Lg ) reports 20-year-old Michelle Marie Ploetz of St. Paul was taken off life support at Regions Hospital and died from a gunshot wound to the head.
According to the complaint, Hendricks and Ploetz had gone to dinner with Ploetz's father Wednesday so Hendricks could see his 8-month-old son.
After dinner, Ploetz's father was driving when he heard a "pop," pulled over, heard another "pop" and tried to wrestle the gun away from Hendricks.
Hendricks told police he was hearing voices and "just snapped." A defense attorney has not been appointed yet.
