BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A Bozeman man who was charged with killing his girlfriend earlier this month faces additional charges for breaking into her house, stealing her vehicle and violating a restraining order.

Gallatin County prosecutors filed a motion Thursday to charge Anthony Tobias Fagiano with deliberate homicide, aggravated burglary, theft and violating an order of protection that had been served on him 17 days before the shooting, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1LMtxbJ) reported.

Fagiano, 35, appeared in Justice Court on the homicide charge on March 9 - hours after 37-year-old Darcy Buhmann was killed. He did not enter a plea. His bail was set at $1 million. An initial appearance on the new charges is set for Monday.

Charging documents say Fagiano reported breaking into Buhmann’s house and shooting her in the abdomen and head. He said he took her vehicle, drove into the woods and contemplated killing himself. He texted his mother, his sister and Buhmann’s estranged husband to tell them that he’d killed her, court records said.

Fagiano’s sister called him and convinced him to surrender to law enforcement, court records said. Officers found the suspected murder weapon in Buhmann’s car in the parking lot of the law and justice center.

Fagiano’s public defender, Mary Kramer, did not return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
