Cops: Man fatally ran over girlfriend in front of her children – CBS News
PHOENIX — Authorities say a man has been arrested for allegedly fatally running over his girlfriend in the parking lot of a Phoenix club in front of her two children.
Police say 26-year-old Ricardo Garcia is being held on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and four counts of aggravated assault.
They say 28-year-old Anjelica Moraga died of her injuries at a hospital early Sunday.
According to police, Moraga and Garcia argued late Saturday night outside the club and he rammed into his girlfriend’s vehicle, causing minor damage.
Inside the car were two other adults and Moraga’s two children.
Police say Moraga was outside of her vehicle in the parking lot when Garcia allegedly ran her over with his car. Garcia then allegedly fled the scene.
A short while later, police were called to an alley where Moraga’s family had located Garcia and were fighting with him in the car, reports CBS affiliate KPHO. Police arrested Garcia without further incident.
It was unclear Monday if he has a lawyer yet.
