Stephanie Moseley, a Canadian actress, dancer and choreographer, was shot to death by her husband, the rapper Earl Hayes, last night in a shocking murder-suicide. She was just 30 years old.

Police were called to the apartment that Moseley and Hayes shared in the Park La Brea area of Los Angeles at about 7:30am and heard shots being fired from inside. By the time SWAT officers entered the building, both of the occupants were dead.

Shockingly, TMZ has reported that the couple's close friend, the boxer Floyd Mayweather, witnessed the shootings via facetime as he tried to calm the situation after receiving and irate call from 36-year-old Hayes.

Moseley, who had a small role in Twilight: Breaking Dawn (Part One) as well as working as a choreographer for the hit teen movie, had a multi-faceted career with many roles in film, television and music videos.

At the time of her death, Moseley was slated to reprise her role as Arelly in Season 3 of VH1's cheerleading drama, Hit The Floor. Her other TV credits include appearing on CW's Hellcats, the Disney themed Once Upon a Time, and a one-time role as Jamie Foxx's wife in a TV special about his life. Mosely was handpicked by the legendary actor himself for the latter role.

Moseley also had dancing roles in 2012's Mirror, Mirror and 2006's prohibition era musical, Idlewild.
