FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Fairbanks police say a fatal shooting started over a woman’s attempt to kick her younger cousin out of her apartment.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1wPvgmR) reports 25-year-old Emmalee Clark was arraigned Thursday on a charge of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 33-year-old Jeanelle Clark.

Emmalee Clark’s bail was set at $500,000.

Fairbanks police detective Chris Nolan in a criminal complaint says Jeanelle Clark asked her cousin to leave and a fight broke out.

He says Emmalee Clark one point pinned her cousin to the floor but let her up.

Nolan says Emmalee Clark told investigators Jeanelle Clark tried to kick her and ordered her out, so she went to her suitcase, removed a .44-caliber handgun and shot the older woman in the face.
