INDIANAPOLIS -- Prosecutors filed a charge of murder against 18-year-old Marissa Huffman on Tuesday in connection with the death of her boyfriend last week.
Police were called to the 800 block of Birch Avenue on Friday shortly before 6 a.m. They arrived to find 21-year-old Joshua Tye suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Huffman was on scene when police arrived and was taken into custody on a preliminary charge of murder.
Detectives said Huffman gave “numerous versions” of the events throughout her interview with police. While being processed, though, Huffman reportedly said, “I killed my boyfriend” – later adding, “He deserved to die. F*** him.”
