Cops: Charlotte woman slain, suspect kills self

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Investigators say they found a body inside a burning home in Charlotte, and they think the suspect in the killing committed suicide in a shed nearby.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said they got a call about a fire and a possible break-in at a home in northeast Charlotte early Sunday morning. Authorities say the body of 32-year-old Stephanie Ott was found in the burning garage, and homicide detectives were called.

As police searched the neighborhood, they found 52-year-old Robert Stover inside a shed at a nearby home. Authorities say Stover shot and killed himself after officers confronted him.

Investigators say Ott and Stover were roommates.
