LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS 11) -- A man that was shot during what police said was a domestic dispute last month has died.

The Jefferson County coroner said 29-year-old Ollie Davis died from a gun shot wound to the upper abdomen he sustained on Feb. 26.

Davis' girlfriend, Candra McWhorter, was arrested March 3 and charged with assault.

Police said the two were arguing at a home in the 2100 block of Wilson Avenue when McWhorter grabbed a gun and shot Davis. Davis was critically wounded and was taken to University Hospital where he later died.

McWhorter will now face a murder charge and will be arraigned on the new charge Monday. She is being held on a $25,000 bond for murder.
