A Waukesha woman fatally shot her "on again, off again" boyfriend in February at his Milwaukee apartment, where the victim's body remained undiscovered for days, according to a criminal complaint issued March 21.
Porsche Humphery, 30, stands accused of first-degree reckless homicide in the shooting. She was charged Tuesday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court and ordered held on a $25,000 cash bond the same day, online court records show.
According to the complaint, investigators believe Humphery shot her former boyfriend, 28-year-old Loren High, on Feb. 1 with High's .40-caliber Glock pistol at High's apartment in the 3800 block of North 24th Place in Milwaukee.
Police did not find that gun at the crime scene.
One of High's friends discovered his body about four days later, the complaint said, after a handful of people who knew High said they hadn't heard from and were concerned about him.
Another friend told police High told her he was supposed to meet and talk with Humphery at his apartment the night he died, according to the complaint.
Investigators tracked down surveillance footage of Humphery in the Milwaukee area that night, and when they executed a search warrant at her Waukesha apartment two days after High's body was found, they reportedly discovered various articles of clothing that matched what she was wearing in the surveillance video. The clothing was in Humphery's bathroom, wet and smelled strongly of cleaner, the complaint said.
GPS data on her phone also puts the device at or near High's apartment around the time police believe he was killed, according to the complaint.
In an interview with police, Humphery denied visiting High on Feb. 1, but also reportedly provided conflicting statements about her whereabouts that night.
Court records indicate that her preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 29. She is facing up to 60 years in prison if convicted.
