Roming said he “felt like he was wrestling with himself and the gun went off, shooting Sally.”

Police said Roming eventually told detectives he had staged the home invasion “due to having blacked out during the shooting.” He admitted there wasn’t an intruder.

Roming was arrested Tuesday and charged with homicide, making a false report of a crime and tampering with evidence.
