BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman is accused of killing her former boyfriend by pinning him against a garage wall with a car and crushing him.
The Connecticut Post reports that 21-year-old Cherelle Baldwin of Bridgeport was arrested Monday and charged with murder in the May 18 death of 24-year-old Jeffrey Brown.
Police say Baldwin accelerated as she drove 100 feet into Brown, crushing him between the car and a cinder-block wall at the rear of a garage.
Police spokesman William Kaempffer says the impact pushed the wall back more than 10 inches.
Baldwin is being held in lieu of $1 million bond and couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Police say she has given several accounts of the crash, but her version was not substantiated by the evidence.
