Police: Missouri Man Shoots Girlfriend after $36 Dispute
Authorities allege a Missouri man killed his girlfriend in front of her daughter after she refused to lend him $36.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 42-year-old Brian Clay was charged Thursday in the shooting death of his girlfriend, 32-year-old Loreal Goode. Police say Clay shot Goode in the head while in a car in a Family Dollar parking lot in Jennings Wednesday. Goode’s 14-year-old daughter was also in the vehicle.
Authorities say the shooting occurred after Goode refused Clay’s request for a ride to a pawnshop and $36 so he could get his TV back.
The couple had been dating for about six years.
Clay faces charges of first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm. He was denied bail.
