An update on the investigation into a deadly shooting in Traverse City.

Robert Caldwell tells police he accidentally shot and killed his girlfriend, Monica Anderson, in an attempt to take his own life.

It happened at the couple's apartment on Aero Park Drive on November 19, 2013.

Caldwell's claim the shooting was accidental has been his story from the beginning when he first made the call to dispatchers.
Police now say there is no information to discredit Caldwell's story that the shooting was accidental.

Captain Ayling with the Traverse City Police Department says the police investigation is now over, and the report was sent to the prosecutor's office for review on December 20, 2013 - a month after Anderson died.
Prosecutor Bob Cooney Tells 9&10 News he has reviewed most of the report documents, and his offices could file charges by the end of January.
