A man is accused of killing a woman as two people pleaded with him to stop, police said.
Around 12:30 a.m. on Sept 3, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona responded to a home for a domestic violence report.
When deputies arrived, they found a dead woman. A man was also present and he had injuries from being assaulted, according to the sheriff’s office.
Investigators determined Justin Jarvy and Michelle Bock-Caswell were living together at the home. They started to argue, and Bock-Caswell began yelling for help.
Two witnesses heard her pleas for help and tried to come to her aid, according to the sheriff’s office. They went to the home and saw Jarvy on top of the victim, with a choke hold around her neck.
The witnesses yelled at Jarvy to get off, but he refused and she became unresponsive, according to the sheriff’s office.
One of the witnesses then got into a fight with Jarvy to keep him away from the victim.
Police arrested Jarvy and charged him with second-degree murder.
