TOBYHANNA, Pa. — Police in the Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains say they’ve arrested a man charged with shooting and killing his girlfriend after an argument.

Twenty-eight-year-old Morgan McGee was found dead in her Tobyhanna-area home early Tuesday morning. Police say her body had signs of trauma and a gunshot wound to the face.

Pocono Mountain Regional Police say her boyfriend and father of her child, 31-year-old Eric Jones, shot and killed McGee. Jones was arrested for public drunkenness after he showed up at the scene of McGee’s death while police were there.

Police later found shoes with blood on them at the home of Jones’ parents. He is currently being held without bail at county jail and is charged with criminal homicide.

Court records do not list an attorney for Jones.
