Ashley Eide faces charges in man's shooting death

PHOENIX - A 24-year-old woman has been arrested after a man was shot and killed in West Phoenix early Saturday.

Phoenix police say Ashley Eide faces a charge of manslaughter in the shooting death.

Sgt. Steve Martos said officers responded to an apartment complex near Indian School Road and 71st Avenue for a report of shots fired.

Officers found an adult male victim with fatal wounds on the stairwell landing near an apartment at the complex.

Martos said investigators learned Eide and the 26-year-old victim were involved in a romantic relationship.

Investigators believe an incident of domestic violence took place early Saturday morning which resulted in the death of the victim.

Martos said Eide's 5-year-old child was present during the altercation but was unharmed.

After interviews with witnesses, the suspect and with evidence found at the scene, Eide was booked into jail for manslaughter, Martos said.

The child was placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

Police have not released the name of the victim.
