INDEPENDENCE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a Louisiana woman was fatally shot a day before her birthday and her boyfriend has been charged with obstruction of justice.

The Advocate reports the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that 27-year-old Letisha Rheams was fatally shot Tuesday.

Rheams was on the front porch when deputies arrived. Sheriff Jason Ard says Rheams was suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower back. She was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Her boyfriend, 37-year-old Ollie Selders, was charged and taken into custody. Ard says his version of events conflicts with the collected evidence.

It’s unclear if Selders has a lawyer.
