WASHINGTON, N.C. – A Pinetown woman is accused of shooting a man in the head and killing him.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Officie says deputies responded to a report of an unresponsive person at a home on Long Ridge Road on Wednesday night. They found 59-year-old Michael Wayne Moon dead with a gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators say 54-year-old Dee Trent Reifinger shot Moon with a handgun. She was charged with an open count of murder.

Deputies say Moon and Riefinger had been living together at the residence on Long Ridge Road. There's no word on what prompted the murder.
