(AP) A 21-year-old Monroe woman charged with aggravated battery allegedly told police she shot her boyfriend because he wouldn't let her sleep. The motive for Saturday's shooting was detailed in an arrest affidavit.

The woman remains in Ouachita Correctional Center with no set bond. She was charged with shooting her boyfriend, who was found by Ouachita Parish sheriff's deputies in his car at an intersection early Saturday. The boyfriend's name was not released.

He had been shot once in the hip and was taken to the LSU Health Sciences Center for treatment. Deputies said they met the suspect walking near the shooting scene and the woman allegedly led authorities to the handgun, which she had thrown into a culvert.
