Murder charges were filed Friday against the 31-year-old Murray man accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend earlier this month.
Ryan Randy Robinson was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Tuesday, and formal charges of criminal homicide, aggravated assault, and purchase of a firearm by a restricted person, all felony charges, were filed against the man in 3rd District Court Friday.
Charging documents outline the April 9 incident where Robinson is accused of beating his 25-year-old girlfriend, Shantelle Reid, outside of their home, and then later shooting her. The documents state Murray Police responded to a home at 6341 S. 725 East after witnesses say they saw Robinson slapping and hitting Reid. Witnesses say they also saw him allegedly punch his girlfriend in the face, throw her on the ground and drag her by her hair. But when officers questioned the couple, both denied any physical incident taking place.
