Mississippi woman charged with murder in fatal shooting

(AP) — A Mississippi woman has been charged with murder in a fatal shooting.

Tupelo police tell news outlets they arrested 30-year-old Ambra Zinn on Wednesday and also charged her with false pretense in the death of 51-year-old Kelly Conway.

Conway’s body was found Monday inside an apartment attached to a Tupelo home. Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green says the preliminary autopsy reports show Conway died from a single gunshot wound. Green would not release the location of the wound.

Police haven’t said why they believe Conway may have killed Zinn. Conway had recently been held at the Lee County jail for 17 days on a bad check charge. She was released three days before her death.

It’s unclear if Zinn has a lawyer, or if a judge has considered bail.
