A Riverview woman has been charged in the March 5 death of a man who was staying at her residence.

Tamra Suzanne Leasure, 43, of 12920 Shadow Run Blvd., Riverview, was arrested today and charged with the second-degree murder of Arthur R. Tilley Jr., 57, of Dedham, Maine, according to a release by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Leasure shot and killed Tilley, then placed the gun in his hand to make it look like a suicide, the release said.

The pair was arguing in the kitchen when Leasure used a .38-caliber handgun to shoot the victim three times. The victim was shot in the head, neck and body. According to the release she told deputies, “The third shot was not necessary.”

She then called 911 to report a suicide, and put the gun in the victim’s hand. More on Brandon News & Tribune
