Gosnell was charged with first-degree murder after police tracked him down on I-240 in the Asheville, N.C., area and took him into custody.
Williams, 42, met Gosnell online several months ago through the site, according to police reports. The two had been dating though Williams had apparently tried to break the relationship off before Gosnell reportedly drove to her home and shot her just before 8 a.m. on the morning of Aug. 17, according to the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office.
