HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Sentencing is set for a western Maryland man who fatally shot his former girlfriend when she came to his house to retrieve her belongings.
Thirty-year-old Shaun Frazier of Sharpsburg faces a possible life sentence Tuesday in Hagerstown.
Frazier pleaded guilty in September to first-degree murder in the May 2015 slaying of 24-year-old Lena Titus. He said at his plea hearing he’s been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorder.
Prosecutors say Frazier shot Titus with a rifle from a second-story window as she drove up to the house, and then came outside and blasted her with a shotgun as she tried to flee on foot.
Investigators say Frazier texted friends before and after the shooting. One message read, “Lena is here. It’s time to take action.”
