He says Beverly Livley shot herself in the head, police believe otherwise. That's why they arrested Steven Black.
The shooting happened Sunday night in Sissonville.
The couple was pulled over on the side of the road near Tuppers Creek. They got into a fight, that's when police say Black shot Livley.
Black told a witness Livley fell off the back of the motorcycle.
He then changed his story to say, she shot herself.
Black is in jail on $100,000 bond. Livley remains hospitalized.
