Trial begins for Caitlin Matheson, woman charged with murdering Mt. Health boyfriend

CINCINNATI - The murder trial for Caitlin Matheson will begin Wednesday at the Hamilton County courthouse after she was charged with murdering her boyfriend more than a year ago.

Matheson was charged with murder for the shooting death of her boyfriend, 26-year-old Quincy Shaw, who was found shot in the chest at a Mt. Healthy apartment on Clovernook Avenue in April of 2011.

Prior to being charged with murder, Matheson was arrested for providing misleading information about the crime.

Matheson initially blamed intruders for his death, stating that two men forced their way into the apartment through a sliding glass door and fatally shot Shaw.

The trial begins at 10 a.m.
