SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Spartanburg County’s coroner is planning an autopsy after a man was killed by a shotgun blast to his chest.
Spartanburg police say 20-year-old David Allen Moholland was shot to death on Monday. His girlfriend was charged with murder. She is 21-year-old Erika Michelle Sutelman. Jail officials could not be reached Tuesday to find out whether she had an attorney.
Coroner Rusty Clevenger says an autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.
Police say the couple had been staying at a Spartanburg apartment as guests of another couple.
A police report says Sutelman told officers they were playing with a 12-gauge shotgun inside the apartment and she thought the gun’s safety was on so she pulled the trigger, hitting Moholland.
