The 33-year-old boyfriend of former Time magazine reporter Julie Grace was charged Thursday with killing her during an argument in her Chicago apartment.

George Thompson was charged with first-degree murder for allegedly punching and pushing Grace, 41, causing her to fall and strike her head against a bedroom dresser, Chicago police said.

Grace worked in Illinois politics before launching a career in journalism in 1991 and joining Time’s Chicago bureau. She left the magazine in 2001.
