NC man accused of killing girlfriend goes to trial
GASTON, N.C. — A North Carolina man charged with killing his girlfriend in their home two years ago while six children were inside is going to trial.
The Gaston Gazette reports jury selection is set to begin Monday in the murder case against 33-year-old Lindsey Morgan.
The High Shoals man is accused of shooting 27-year-old Stephanie King in the head on Sept. 9, 2007, in their home.
Her four children and his two children were inside. But authorities say none of them were in the room where the shooting occurred.
Gaston County police have said that Morgan told a 911 dispatcher that his girlfriend shot herself. But Sgt. Chris Reynolds said the physical evidence did not match.
Morgan has remained in the Gaston County jail without bond since his arrest.
