A Philadelphia, Pennsylvania woman has been arrested and charged for allegedly shooting her tenant dead over unpaid rent.

28-year-old Anthanasia “Nasia” Moncrief purportedly got into an argument early Saturday morning with 32-year-old Richard Spadel who was renting a room in her house.

The argument escalated into pushing and shoving before she got a gun and shot Spadel in the back.

When officers arrived, they found someone trying to revive the victim, but it was fruitless. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ms. Moncrief told cops that the victim had walked into her bedroom holding scissors, and that that is when she fired a shot at him.

She then went to the police station to give a statement and was promptly charged with murder.
