A Missouri lab technician is accused of helping her boyfriend hide out in her apartment for days after he allegedly shot his former wife to death.
Tameah Foley, 25, was charged Wednesday with two felony counts of hindering the prosecution of a felony, a press release from the St. Louis County Police Department reads.
Foley’s boyfriend Christopher Turner, 26, was allegedly “videotaped murdering his estranged wife by shooting her approximately 8 times” on July 31, according to a probable cause statement obtained by Oxygen.com.
His former wife has been identified as Charlisa Turner, 27. She was allegedly gunned down as she was meeting up with Christopher to pick up their three children, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Christopher fled to Foley’s apartment where he “admitted to her that he shot and killed the victim,” the probable cause statement alleges. “He told her the police were looking to arrest him for murder.”
Foley, a lab technician for the St. Louis County Police Department, then allegedly allowed Christopher to stay with her for nearly three days.
“This Defendant went to the store to provide Turner with clothes and food to assist in his avoidance of felony arrest,” the probable cause statement reads. “When interviewed by police, she initially lied to them about her involvement but later admitted she freely assisted Turner in avoiding being caught by the police.”
Christopher was arrested in her apartment by St. Louis County Police officers. He’s been charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held on $1 million cash bail.
Foley is being held on a $50,000 cash only bond.
It’s not clear if either have lawyers.
A St. Louis County Police Department spokesperson told Oxygen.com over email on Thursday that Foley has been a forensic technician with the department since March of 2020.
“She is currently suspended without pay,” they stated. “A Forensic Technician is an entry level lab position. This position requires no interpretation of data or reporting of results.”
