A TEENAGER has been charged with murder for shooting his 21-year-old girlfriend in the head.
The woman was so mutilated by the wound that Police are still waiting on forensics to be able to identify her.
Her 16-year-old boyfriend has been charged by police after they were called to what they originally believed was a suicide at the couple's apartment in Houston, Texas.
According to ABC13 , Officers found the unnamed woman's body in her bedroom at around 11.30pm on Saturday with a gunshot wound to the head.
Her young boyfriend was at the flat when police arrived and was subsequently arrested.
Under Texas law people found to be having sex with anyone under 17 is considered to be guilty of statutory rape.
