ASHLAND, Wis. (WCCO) — A woman from Rice, Minn. has been charged with killing her boyfriend and leaving his corpse in a motel room.

According to the criminal complaint filed in Ashland County, Wis., 38-year-old Angelina Mae Omara has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

The body of Michael Pies was found at a motel along Highway 2 in Ashland, Wis. on Nov. 2. Pies had been listed as a missing or endangered person.

According to the complaint, a room at the motel had been checked out in Pies’ name.

Authorities performed a welfare check, noting an odor emanating from the room Pies had supposedly checked out. They found Pies’ dead body inside. He had been shot in the head. No one else was there.

Omara was taken into custody at a gas station in Sioux Falls, S.D.

She denied having anything to do with Pies’ death, and blamed his shooting on the Hell’s Angels. She later told investigators that she was involved in a physical struggle with Pies and that he was the one who pulled out the gun. She said once she wrestled it away from him, it went off. She said she didn’t know it was loaded, according to the complaint.

Investigators later learned that the defendant allegedly asked someone at a Cold Spring, Minn. gas station how to use the gun days before the shooting occurred.

Omara later told police that she and Pies were not actually involved in a physical altercation before he was shot. She admitted to hiding the gun in some bushes in Ashland.

    Really? She wrestled a gun away from a man and shot him with it, eh? I don’t find that very likely.

    What a POS
    That said – how come Amy Senser on the loose yet today? Didn’t she leave a corpse too lying on the road? Does a motel rate higher than the road? Does rich and white mean more than poor and white?
    ’nuff said …… lock them up , BOTH of them, for life
