BRONX, NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 24- Police have charged the boyfriend of a Norwood woman who was shot to death inside her home. Cops say the boyfriend called to confess the crime shortly after the murder.
Cops say Frederick White, 42, called police at 12:30 a.m. on September 11. Upon their arrival to 3576 Dekalb Avenue, police discovered Cleopatra Lovelace, 30, had been shot in the back of the head. Lovelace died at the scene.
Few people knew the couple, which only moved into the building a few months earlier.
One resident of the quiet building, who declined to be identified, stated, "I was in complete shock... they would come and go, but no one had time to get to know them."
White has been charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
The victim is the seventh homicide reported within the 52nd Precinct command. There were just three homicides reported over the same time period last year.
