The body of the 47-year-old attorney, who was the star of her own Sundance Channel series Loredana, Esq., was discovered at her property in Redondo Beach, California after her boyfriend, Robert Reagan, reportedly called police to report an emergency, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Nesci reportedly died after sustaining a fatal gunshot wound, and cops later arrested Reagan on suspicion of murder. He is currently being held on $1 million (£625,000) bail.

Nesci was an officer for the Los Angeles Police Department before becoming a lawyer, and she hosted her own legal radio show in California and contributed to U.S. series The View before her own reality TV show premiered in 2013.

According to the programme's official website, new episodes of Loredana, Esq. are slated to air this year (15).

She and Reagan have a son together, Rocco Nesci-Reagan, who was not at home at the time of his mother's death.
