SHOSHONE COUNTY, Idaho (TCD) -- A 47-year-old woman has been arrested after allegedly fatally shooting her 41-year-old boyfriend while he was sleeping and hiding his body in their bedroom for a couple of days.
The sergeant reportedly tried to talk with Peterson's girlfriend, Stephanie Paris, who was inside the home, but she did not let him in.
Authorities told Paris they were there to perform a welfare check, and she said he was in the shower and would be leaving for work, the Shoshone News-Press said.
The responding Shoshone County sergeant, Jared Bilaski, told the Shoshone News-Press, "Stephanie made multiple statements with vulgarities, some of which I was unable to understand since she was speaking through the door and walls of the trailer."
Bilask reportedly told Paris he would be obtaining a search warrant, and she replied, "If you kick that door open, you're going to be dead. I'll shoot you."
The Kellogg Police Department held the residence as the sergeant obtained a search warrant, the Sheriff's Office said. Before the sergeant returned, Paris reportedly came out of the home with a 4-month-old infant.
During the search of the home, authorities located Peterson's body, and it was transported to the medical examiner's office for further investigation, according to the Sheriff's Office. He reportedly had multiple gunshot wounds on his back.
