LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A 38-year-old Las Cruces woman is accused of killing her 42-year-old boyfriend by running over him during an argument after they were out drinking.
Police say Annettee Larson Fuschini is charged with murder and aggravated driving while intoxicated.
Carlos Nevarez Jr. was pronounced dead at a hospital after police found him early Wednesday lying injured on the side of a road.
Police say Fuschini was clearly intoxicated as she attempted to revive Nevarez, whose 42nd birthday was Wednesday.
According to police, Fuschini and Nevarez were drinking alcohol at a friend's home Tuesday evening, began arguing and left together around midnight.
Witnesses saw Nevarez get out of the car and begin walking away before he was run over.
Police say they don't know if whether Fuschini has an attorney.
