CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The boyfriend of a 17-year-old girl who was killed in March has now been indicted on murder charges.

Javonte Dixon, 20, is accused of shooting his girlfriend, Auvionne Chichester, around 6:30 p.m. on March 27, according to the Cincinnati Police Department.

The deadly shooting happened in the 300 block of Forest Avenue, Lt. Tim Lanter with CPD said.

First responders found Chichester suffering from a gunshot wound to her stomach and took her to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where she later died, he said.

Cincinnati police wrote in the criminal complaint that Dixon, Chichester’s boyfriend, shot her during an argument, causing her death.

Police have not said what caused the fight.

When Dixon appeared in court a few weeks ago, the prosecutor mentioned previous allegations of the 20-year-old hitting women. The women never showed up to the court hearings, so the case against Dixon was eventually dismissed, the prosecutor added.
