Beaufort County Murder Suspect Found Dead In Onslow County

Deputies are investigating the death Tuesday night of a woman awaiting trial for the murder of her boyfriend.

Onslow County deputies say they responded to a carbon monoxide alarm call on Duffy Field Road outside of Richlands.

There they found Dee Reifinger in the garage, unresponsive. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Reifinger was arrested last August in Beaufort County for the murder of Michael Moon of Pinetown. She had been released on bond and moved back to Onslow County.

Deputies say the woman's death appears to be self-inflicted, however an investigation is being conducted into her death.
