STOKES CO., N.C. — A woman was arrested after deputies said she shot and killed her boyfriend during a domestic disturbance Tuesday night in Walnut Cove.

Kelly Green Robertson, 48, allegedly killed Donnie Lee Tilley, 59, at the home they lived at together at 2548 Brook Cove Road around 6:45 p.m., said Stokes County Sheriff Mike Marshall.

Deputies said they found Tilley dead at the scene with an apparent gunshot wound. Robertson was not injured but went to the Emergency Room for a medical condition, officials said.

Robertson was charged with murder and placed in the Stokes County Jail without bond. Her first court date is planned Wednesday.

Authorities said no children were in the home at the time of the shooting. Deputies said they have no knowledge of previous domestic violence or disturbance reports coming from the home.

The investigation is ongoing. Deputies said Tilley’s autopsy is pending this week at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

No other information was released.
