A Somerset County man was arraigned on homicide and related charges in the death of his girlfriend.

State and Windber police allege Denver Roy Alan Blough, 25, fatally shot Caressa Kovalcik, 23, about 6:50 p.m. Saturday in their borough apartment.

Blough was arraigned early Sunday before District Judge Susan Mankamyer and is being held in the Somerset County Jail without bail. The couple lives in a 19th Street apartment with their 11-month-old son. Police did not say if the boy was home at the time of the shooting.

In addition to homicide, police charged Blough with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 11 before District Judge William Seger.
