SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A twice-deported man has been charged with murder in the shotgun slaying of his ex-girlfriend.

Twenty-five-year-old Juan Carlos Diaz-Arevalo also has been charged with the possession of a firearm by a restricted person. He has a previous felony weapons conviction.

He is accused in the May 16th slaying of 22-year-old Lindsey Fawson, who was in a car that had just pulled into a driveway of a home in Draper.

Police allege he walked up to the car and got into a fight with the woman.

They alleged that he tried to reach in through the window and Fawson and her sister, also in the car, tried to push him out.

Officers said she opened the door, kicked Diaz-Arevalo and was shot in the face with a sawed-off shotgun.
