Woman accused of killing boyfriend found dead in Onslow County


RICHLANDS, NC (AP) -- A woman charged with killing her boyfriend in Beaufort County has been found dead in Onslow County.

The sheriff's office says firefighters responded to a carbon monoxide alarm Tuesday night at a home in Richlands.

Rhodestown firefighters found 55-year-old Dee Trent Reifinger in a vehicle in the garage. Reifinger was pronounced dead at the scene.

She had been arrested Aug. 21 in the shooting death of Michael Moon in Beaufort County. Officers had responded to a domestic violence call at the couple's home in Pinetown.

Reifinger had been released on bond and moved to Onslow County. Her death is still under investigation.
