The victim's boyfriend returned to the couple's
apartment about 1:35 a.m. and
found the victim armed with his pistol. After confronting the
victim about having his gun, she returned it to its original place.
The victim then entered the bedroom and shot herself in the head.
Investigators found a micro-cassette recorder in the apartment
that contained the victim giving details on how she planned to
kill herself. Evidence on the tape reflected the statement given
