WOMAN MURDERED AND ROBBED - Kanawha County officials say a Chesapeake woman was murdered and then robbed Monday.

Her family says the man who allegedly killed her was no stranger, but a friend who she was trying to help.

Police say 38-year-old John Hudson took advantage of that generosity slaying 39-year-old Michelle Gillispie in her home, where she was living with her boyfriend.

Sometime after Michelle's boyfriend left for work, police say Hudson shot Michelle in the head, robbed her home, took off in her car, leaving her dead.

Hudson turned himself into police, telling WCHS-TV that the shooting was an accident.

Kanawha County Sheriff's deputies say after the murder and robbery, Hudson tried to pawn what he looted from her house.

The woman leaves behind three children.

Hudson has been charged with murder.
