BATH, Maine (AP) -- A Maine man who shot his fiancTe in the head while showing a gun to a prospective buyer in a Bath parking lot is facing criminal charges.

Officials say 23-year-old Dylan Grubbs of Thomaston was arrested Thursday after he was indicted on charges of manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

Grubbs was taken to the Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset, where he was awaiting a court appearance. It is not known if he has a lawyer.

Investigators say Grubbs and the victim, 22-year-old Chelsea Jones, had driven to Bath to meet a prospective buyer when she was shot in November.

They say the gun discharged while Grubbs was outside the SUV. Jones was shot as she sat in the vehicle and died three days later.
