WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (TCD) -- A 27-year-old man was arrested over a month after police say he threw his girlfriend off a third-floor balcony in February.
According to a statement, West Des Moines Police Department officers responded to a call on Feb. 12 at approximately 11:45 p.m. at the Sun Prairie Apartment Complex on Vista Drive regarding a female who had "fallen from the 3rd story apartment balcony."
Officers began performing lifesaving measures on the woman and EMS transported her to a nearby hospital, where she later died. She was identified as 23-year-old Trisha Kunze.
During their investigation, police determined Kunze’s death was not an accident and instead an "intentional act causing the death of Kunze." Detectives arrested Nathen Cameron on April 1 on charges of first-degree murder, willful injury — causing serious injury, domestic assault with strangulation, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, and drug tax stamp violation.
