HOUSTON (September 7, 2010)—A Houston area woman intentionally ran down her husband with her car and rolled over him several times, killing the man, police said Tuesday.
Harris County sheriff's deputies said they found the car Monday night with the woman still behind the wheel and her husband under the vehicle.
Authorities tell the Houston Chronicle a wrecker had to be used to lift the car to free Donald Wesley Holmes, 29, who was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Deputies said witnesses reported that the couple was having marital problems and had been arguing.
Murder charges were pending Tuesday against the woman, whose name wasn’t immediately released.
