BRIGHTON, Colorado — A jury has convicted a woman accused of killing her husband by running him over with her car after an argument in Westminster.
The Adams County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday that 39-year-old Nancy Jo Arias was found guilty of vehicular homicide, DUI and manslaughter in the Aug. 11 death of 38-year-old Phillip Anthony Lobato. She is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 11.
Arias told investigators she had a heated argument in which Lobato hit her in the face several times. She told him to get out of the vehicle, and he continued to hit her through the open car window.
Prosecutors say she then ran him down with the car.
