Tyrone Fields, 21, was arrested after he accidentally shot and killed Christina Meagher, 18, while role-playing during se x on November 7 inside a room at the Microtel Inn & Suites on Church Avenue, Florida.
Fields told investigators that the two were engaged in se xual activity when he put his gun to her head in a role-play scenario that she requested.
He said he removed the magazine from the .9 mm pistol, but forgot to take the bullet out of the chamber. Fields pulled the trigger and shot her in the head. He immediately called 911. He told police that he had only known Meagher for a couple of days before the incident. The hotel surveillance video shows Meagher walking into the room consensually.
Fields said had not yet began having se x, but he was lying on top of her when the gun was fired. He is being held in jail and his bond is set at $30,000. He faces one count of manslaughter with a weapon and a felony one charge.
Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Department says Meagher didn’t have any injuries consistent with se xual battery. Her family is devastated and shocked by the manner in which she died.
