MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. — Authorities say a woman has been charged with fatally shooting her wife in the face in New Jersey.

The Burlington County prosecutor’s office said that 28-year-old Laura Bluestein was charged with murder Monday morning.

They say she shot 29-year-old Felicia Dormans in the face at their home in Mount Holly on Sunday night.

Bluestein was set to appear in Burlington County court later Monday. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney to comment on her behalf.
