A woman killed her boyfriend by shooting him through the head – then claimed she’d done so to get him to stop talking, police said. Stephanie Clark, 29, is also said to have claimed that boyfriend Don Juan hit her just before she allegedly shot him dead at their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last Thursday morning.

Woman ‘shot boyfriend dead because she wanted him to stop talking

Clark, who had been in a two year relationship with Juan, was also accused of shooting him in the back, and said she’d move to defend herself after her partner deliberately injured her back. Investigators found bruises in that area of Clark’s body which appeared to tally with her version of events.

The criminal complaint against Clark says she went to a neighbor’s house following the shooting and said, “He’s dead.” WCCO reported.

The complaint said she had her son with her 5-year-old son when she went to her neighbor’s house. There was also a half-eaten sandwich on a kid’s plate at the scene of the crime. Investigators have determined that the boy was inside the house when Juan was shot.

Clark told authorities she had been hurt in the back as a result of Juan assaulting her, and investigation did reveal bruises on the left side of her back. The complaint goes on to say Clark claimed Juan confronted her about her conversation with a man inside of a store earlier that day, and eventually started punching her. She told police she left to pick up her son and, when she came back, the argument continued.

She said she grabbed a revolver and shot him in the chest, she believed seven or eight times. She said she then shot him in the head because she “wanted him to stop talking.”
