Are they together now (has he just killed her)? He is still alive, if that's what you mean. (And while she's dying, he'll be still alive. And when she's dead, he will be still alive. Still alive. Still alive.)

Is he
indoors
outdoors
at home
in police custody
These several aren't relevant.

sorry about the killing
Yes.

Was the emotion jealousy? No...and may be moving towards FA territory.

Has he done something illegal?

was it the only illegal thing he did?

Did he touch her without leaving any traces?

Was the touch the direct cause of her death? Would it kill an average person?

Did she suffer from any relevant disease?

Was the reason of her death:

Electric shock?
Some sort of psychic trauma?

Did she have any internal injuries?

Did she die because her heart stopped? Because of suffocation? Did she have a fit of any nature?

Was the disease rather a common one? Epilepsy? Allergy? Did it have something to do with her brain? Heart? Blood? Lungs?

Did he touch her with his hand? Another part of his body? With an object?

Is it relevant what part of her body he touched?

If he showed the relevant part of his body in a public place could it be considered as indecent exposure?

Mouth? Did he kiss her? Was she allergic to some substance he was carrying on him? Or merely to his body (I heard of a couple which were allergic to each other and had to separate although they were deeply in love)?

Mouth? Did he kiss her? Was she allergic to some substance he was carrying on him? Or merely to his body (I heard of a couple which were allergic to each other and had to separate although they were deeply in love)? That's a pretty crazy story. This one wasn't quite so surprising, but you did get it.

*****SPOILER*****
He had recently eaten fresh pineapple, to which she was badly allergic (I suppose this could work with peanuts, shrimp, etc., too.) When he kissed her, he still had some juice on his lips, which was enough to induce an allergic reaction, and she suffocated from it.


Thanks to Alhucema for taking an interest in and attacking this puzzle. It's not easy to stump you guys -- although I liked this one more for its clever statement than its difficulty. I already have a new puzzle in mind, and will post it soonish.
