HOUSTON – Authorities say a woman intentionally ran down her husband with her car and rolled over him several times, killing the man.
Harris County sheriff’s deputies said they found the car on Monday night with the woman still behind the wheel and her husband under the vehicle.
Freed by wrecker
Authorities told the Houston Chronicle a wrecker had to lift the car to free 29-year-old Donald Wesley Holmes. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Deputies said witnesses reported that the couple was having marital problems and had been arguing. They said the woman was expected to be charged with murder. Her name was not immediately released. (AP)
Scholarship  named for ex-AP reporter
BLOOMINGTON, Indiana – Indiana University (IU) says a US$1.75 million donation from retired Associated Press reporter and editor Marty Anderson will endow a scholarship fund for journalism students.
The university announced the creation of the Ann and Marty Anderson Scholarship in Journalism with the largest individual gift ever to the School of Journalism.
Anderson graduated from IU in 1957 and began a 33-year career with the AP in Indiana after serving in the army. His work for the AP included covering the Beatles’ only Indiana concert and a deadly gas explosion at the state fairgrounds coliseum in 1963.
Anderson said he was gratified that his contribution would help students attend what he called the finest journalism facility in the country. (AP)
