Union Student Charged In Fiancee's Shooting Death

CREATED Feb 16, 2014

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Jackson Police believe a Union University student killed his fiancee and then tried to make her death look like a suicide.

WNWS-FM reports Charles Pittman, a 21-year-old senior majoring in Christian ministries, is charged with first-degree murder and tampering with evidence.

Pittman's fiancee is Olivia Greenlee, a 21-year-old senior majoring in music education. She was found dead of a gunshot wound in her car on campus early Wednesday morning.

Police believe that Pittman shot Greenlee on Tuesday night and then staged the scene to look like a suicide.

Pittman's arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday in Jackson City Court.

The Associated Press was unable to determine whether Pittman had obtained an attorney.
