Man charged with homicide after girlfriend drops from Pennsylvania high-rise

(Harrisburg, PA-AP) February 27, 2006 - Police in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, say a state employee "was distraught and extremely inebriated" when arrested after the death of his girlfriend.

Kevin Evenrode allegedly dropped her from a 23rd-story apartment window. He's charged with homicide and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say they'd both been drinking.

Harrisburg's mayor says Evenrode told police he and his girlfriend were fooling around when he lost his grip as he dangled her out the apartment window Saturday night.

The 23-year-old woman was dressed only in underwear and a sweater when she broke a skylight on the portico and then fell to the pavement in front of the building.

A prosecutor says even if Evenrode's story is true it's "beyond ridiculous" to dangle someone out a high-rise.

Evenrode has been suspended without pay from his job as a press aide for the state gambling board.
