A West Miami-Dade man has confessed to the shooting death of his 23-year-old live-in girlfriend after being taken into custody, police said Wednesday.

Oscar Gonzalez, 28, was charged with second-degree murder in Sunday’s death of Rosemary Ramirez-Morales. He is being held without bond at the Turner-Knight Correctional Center.

Police were looking for Gonzalez from the moment another roommate arrived home Sunday to find Ramirez-Morales dead. An earlier 911 call from a man who didn’t identify himself said “something occurred” at 9621 Fontainebleau Blvd., but didn’t elaborate.
