LA PUENTE (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a 52-year-old woman with running over her boyfriend with her car and killing him at a motel in La Puente.

On Sunday, Sharon Kay Hood and Randolph Morales, 51, were involved in a dispute inside their motel room, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The fight spilled into the parking lot and at some point Hood got in her car and drove over Morales.

Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Hood was arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently being held in lieu of $2 million bail.

If convicted as charged, she faces 26 years to life in prison.

Hood is expected to appear in court on June 8.
