Dawn Mcintosh, 46, was busted after a detective noticed she was missing a fake fingernail. The victim, 43-year-old Shawn McWhorter, who was identified by the tattoos on his arm, had a fake fingernail on his body, police say.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told reporters in a press conference: “On his body we find a fingernail and we noticed that when we talk to his girlfriend she’s missing a fingernail.

“We take her back into custody, we start speaking to her, and she makes admissions she actually killed him.”

Police say the couple was arguing over infidelity and money.

"She shoots him twice,” Boyce said. “She then got two other people to help her get rid of the body. She put lighter fluid on him and then started the fire.”

Firefighters responding to a blaze at 7 a.m. on Saturday found McWhorter’s body.
