Authorities: Woman runs over husband, kills him

HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say a woman intentionally ran down her husband with her car and rolled over him several times, killing the man.

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 lift the car to free 29-year-old Donald Wesley Holmes. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Deputies say witnesses reported that the couple was having marital problems and had been arguing.

April Holmes was jailed on a $50,000 bond facing a murder charge. Online records had no information on an attorney.

The Houston area had a similar case in 2002, when Clara Harris ran over and killed her husband after confronting him with his mistress.
