CINCINNATI -- A woman was arrested Monday on a murder warrant for an Over-the-Rhine shooting last week.

Ashley Freeny, 26, is charged in the death of Briyona Ragland, also 26. Officers found Ragland dead inside an apartment on McMicken Avenue early Thursday morning. Freeny also faces several drug charges and a theft charge.

Cincinnati police haven't yet said what led to the shooting. In court Tuesday morning, Freeny's attorney said the gun accidentally discharged, and that the two women were friends.

Municipal Court Judge Fanon Rucker set Freeny's bond at $1 million.

The investigation by the Cincinnati Police Department’s Homicide Unit is ongoing.
