PHOENIX (AP) - Police say a man is dead after his ex-girlfriend allegedly ran over him with a car on an east Phoenix street.
Phoenix police say 24-year-old Christopher Miller was declared dead at the scene early Monday after he was extricated from underneath the vehicle.
Police say 25-year-old Verena Herron has been arrested after calling 911 and remaining at the scene.
They say she’s been booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder.
It was unclear if Herron has a lawyer yet.
Police say Miller was out walking with a couple when he was hit by the car.
Witnesses told police about the incident.
Police say Miller and Herron recently had an argument, but a motive isn’t immediately clear in the homicide case.
