PINK HILL, NC (WNCT) – An Alabama woman is behind bars in connection with a weekend homicide in Lenoir County.

The Pink Hill Police Department responded to Johnson Mobile Home park Sunday morning. That’s where officers found 56-year-old Garry Lee Spitzer dead from a gunshot wound, his 3-year-old daughter inside the residence with him.

Police said Monday afternoon that 24-year-old Katey Millican found Spitzer’s body and called 911. But after questioning her earlier in the day, they arrested and charged her with felony conspiracy to commit murder. She’s in the Lenoir County Jail on a one million dollar bond.

The victim and Millican were previously in a relationship and she’s the biological mother of the toddler. They were also said to be in a custody battle in Craven County. Millican was up from Alabama to visit the child.

Police said there are two other people of interest in the case.

The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office is assisting with the investigation.
