A Winslow woman who was shot at a residence Tuesday evening succumbed to her injuries according to Indiana State Police.
An autopsy conducted in Petersburg yesterday afternoon revealed that 24-year-old Kelsie McDonald of Winslow died from multiple gunshot wounds suffered after she was shot by her ex-boyfriend, 32-year-old Christopher Morton of Winslow Tuesday evening during a domestic dispute.
According to Indiana State Police, Pike County Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call at about 11 pm Tuesday night about a domestic disturbance and shots being fired at a residence in the 100 block of South Bluff Street in Winslow. When police arrived, McDonald was found unconscious in the living room. She was taken to Jasper’s Memorial Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Morton was in the kitchen of the residence with a gun in one hand and a beer can in the other when police arrived. Morton was tasered by police and taken into custody after refusing to drop his weapon when asked to do so. Morton is being held in the Pike County Jail without bond on a Class A felony for murder.
Morton and McDonald’s 3-year-old daughter was at the apartment, but was not harmed in the shooting. Police say she is now with family.
