A woman who called police to report that she had shot her boyfriend also told an officer that she was a paranoid schizophrenic who blacked out during the incident, court records show.

Dianna Elaine Sanders, 49, called 911 the morning of Nov. 13 from a 7-Eleven, 9535 NE 10, to report that she had shot a man at 930 N Pine, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Sanders remains without bail in the Oklahoma County jail.

When police arrived, they found Stephen Dollarhide, 54, shot to death on the living room floor and a pistol on the table.

Sanders told officers that she had lived with Dollarhide for the past year and a half and that he began talking about flight simulation, Sept. 11, 2001, and al-Qaida before the shooting. She also said that Dollarhide had no mental conditions, but that she was a paranoid schizophrenic, according to the affidavit.

Sanders also told police that she felt trapped, and that “he would never leave when she expressed the desire to,” the affidavit states, but that he had not been physically abusive toward her.

Before the shooting, Dollarhide reportedly got out a shotgun and handgun. Sanders told police that she shot him once before going to the convenience store, according to the affidavit.
