BOZEMAN, Mont. – Authorities say a Montana man gunned down his girlfriend and then sent a text message about the killing to her ex-husband and others.
Anthony Tobias Fagiano has been charged with deliberate homicide. Bozeman police say the 35-year-old turned himself in Wednesday morning, about two hours after he said he broke into Darcy Buhmann's house and shot her.
Buhmann's ex-husband called 911 to report getting a text from Fagiano about the shooting. Police found her body in her bedroom closet.
Court records say Fagiano told officers he had been in a relationship with Buhmann for about a year and had been thinking about killing her for several months. He said he recently stole a rifle, intending to use it to kill her.
Public defender Mary Kramer didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
Fagiano's bail was set at $1 million.
