Bond has been set at $1 million for a man accused intentionally driving on a north Phoenix sidewalk and fatally running over a woman and seriously injuring her 11-year-old daughter.

Court documents released Thursday night show that 45-year-old Trent Ferree told Phoenix police that it was a combination of drinking alcohol and hearing voices in his head that “made him want to murder someone.”

The Mesa man reportedly told homicide detectives that he drove around Wednesday evening looking for a victim to run over.

Ferree is jailed on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.

He doesn’t have a lawyer yet.
