PHOENIX (AP) -- A 24-year-old woman has pleaded not guilty in the fatal shooting of her boyfriend on a landing of the Phoenix apartment complex where they lived.
 
Ashley Elizabeth Eide was arrested in the Feb. 1 shooting death of 26-year-old Fernando Ruelas.
 
She's charged with manslaughter and misconduct involving weapons. She entered her plea Wednesday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
 
Police say Eide told investigators that she and Ruelas argued and he hit her several times.
 
She told police that she feared for her life but didn't mean to shoot him.
 
Police say Eide had injuries to her face when officers arrived at the apartment complex.
