McDowell Co. Murder Charges

Updated: Wednesday, April 17 2013, 04:27 PM EDT

Deputies say a McDowell County man shot and killed his girlfriend during an argument early Monday morning. 23-year-old Darian Mosley is charged with murder in the death of 40-year-old Amy Parker.


The shooting happened shortly after 2 a.m. at a duplex on Rocky Spur Drive across from West Marion Elementary School. Deputies say the two had been arguing Sunday night when Mosley shot Parker with a small-caliber rifle.


Next door in the duplex, Travis Blanton heard the shot. He checked on his children, then went outside to find the couple outside. He says he saw Mosley standing over Parker. Blanton began first aid, while Mosley was calling 911. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.


Deputies say Parker leaves behind three children. Mosley is in the McDowell County Jail being held without bond.
