LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A man was arrested nearly a month after a woman was shot and killed inside a home in east Louisville.
It happened on Symington Circle near the intersection of Ballardsville Road and Worthington Place Drive in East Louisville in January. 23-year-old Mollie "Michaela" White died at the scene. A man was also shot; he survived.
William Bald is charged with murder, assault and robbery.
Police arrested Bald Tuesday while he was at his probation officer's office. Court documents show Bald was on probation for multiple robberies.
Bald is also accused of stealing $100 from the murder scene.
In a statement from White's family that a friend read, her family called her compassionate for troubled people, which is why she was in the house where she lost her life.
"I'm grateful for the time I did have with her," says Sarah Mennen, a friend of White. "I'll cherish it for the rest of my life. She was a beautiful person."
White's family and friends made a GoFundMe to raise $5,000. The money will go toward a commemorative bench, which will be placed in Beckley Creek Park in White's honor.
