Woman charged in death of boyfriend

By The Associated Press

CROWN POINT — A northwestern Indiana woman has been charged with murder for allegedly killing her boyfriend by driving over him twice with a car.

Twenty-three-year-old Briana Rice of Hammond faces other charges, including voluntary manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident, in the April 24 death of 25-year-old Terrondy Jones.

She appeared for an initial hearing Monday in Lake County during which a judge entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.

The Post-Tribune reports that a witness told police she saw a couple arguing outside an East Chicago apartment before a man began walking away from a car. The witness said a woman driver then ran over the man twice before driving away from the scene.

Online court documents do not list the name of Rice’s court-appointed attorney.
