Gold Coast woman charged with murder

A Gold Coast woman is expected to face the Southport Magistrates Court this morning after being charged with murder for allegedly shooting her partner at a home in Southport in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

39-year-old Paanice Lawrence is accused of pulling the trigger on her 46-year-old partner before calling Triple Zero to report the incident.

Emergency services arrived at the Waverly Street address to find the man suffering a single gunshot wound - he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ms Lawrence was taken into custody at the Southport Watchhouse, and has since been charged with murder and being in possession of a category H weapon.
