Tupelo, MS: Miss. woman kills man by running over him in truck

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - A Marshall County woman is in jail after she killed her boyfriend by running him over with a pickup truck.

Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson says that Karen Farr is being held after running over Ronnie Perry, 49, in a Ford Ranger pickup truck. The incident happened on U.S. 72 near the Tennessee state line.

Dickerson says Perry left a motel where the couple was staying after an argument Friday and walked east on the highway. Farr followed in the truck, saw Perry and swerved to hit him, the sheriff says. Farr hit another vehicle after running over Perry and wrecked the truck. The other driver was uninjured, State Trooper Joe Miller said. Farr walked back to the motel, where she was arrested.
