his girlfriend is charged

A man wanted in a fatal shooting in June was shot to death early Thursday in his Northeast Baltimore apartment, and police have charged his girlfriend with first-degree murder.

Sgt. Frederick H. Bealefeld of the homicide squad said Troy "Tubby" Pressley, 25, of the 6800 block of Sturbridge Drive was shot at least once in the chest about 6: 30 a.m., allegedly during a domestic argument in a bedroom, and died a short time later at Sinai Hospital.

Bealefeld said Pressley had been sought in a warrant charging him with first-degree murder in the death of Shawn Anderson, 28, who was shot June 28 in the 3300 block of W. Belvedere Ave. by a man with whom he had a dispute.

Bealefeld said evidence gathered at Pressley's apartment Thursday morning led police to go to a Liberty Heights-area house about noon. They arrested the girlfriend as she left the house.

Tiyada Raye, 20, who lived with Pressley, was charged late Thursday with first-degree murder and a handgun violation. She was being held without bail at the Central Booking and Intake Center.

Bealefeld said the small-caliber handgun used to kill Pressley had not been recovered.
