Girlfriend charged with hit-and-run death of St. Paul man

| No Comments

The girlfriend of a St. Paul man who was run over by a car in an incident recorded by a 911 call has been charged with his death, the Star Tribune reports.

Arlene Garcia was charged Thursday with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide, after police say she and another woman ran her boyfriend, Mark Urang, over with her car after a domestic dispute at a St. Paul bar.

Police say the incident was caught on tape during a call between 911 operators and Urang Wednesday night. The recording reveals an argument between Urang and another person, followed by what police believe are the sounds of Urang being run over my Garcia's car before the call cut off, the Pioneer Press said. Urang was taken to Regions Hospital, where he died on Thursday of a hemorrhage and a skull fracture sustained in the incident.

Investigators found Garcia at her home after looking through criminal records for an address, and questioning bartenders at the bar she and Urang were spotted arguing at earlier in the evening. A car was found at Garcia's home, with what investigators believe to be shreds of clothing on the under body of the car. Garcia is currently being held at Ramsey County Jail on $100,000 bail.
