A woman in Indiana has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter over a year after she killed her boyfriend by intentionally running over him multiple times with a car outside a bar, officials said.
Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police responding to the parking lot at Tilly’s Pub around 12:30 a.m. on June 3 found Andre Smith, 26, dead underneath a vehicle.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office determined the man died after he was intentionally struck multiple times, the Indy Star reported.
According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by the publication, Gaylyn Morris, 26, was identified as a suspect in Smith’s death and allegedly told a witness she was able to follow her boyfriend to the pub using an Apple AirTag tracking device and GPS.
When she arrived, she found him with another woman and believed he was cheating, the witness said, according to the affidavit.
Morris was accused of attempting to attack the woman with a wine bottle before Smith intervened and they were asked to leave the bar, the affidavit states.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the witness alleged she watched as Morris “pulled forward and clipped [Smith], and he went down, at which time... [Morris] then backed over him and then pulled forward and hit him for the third time.”
After allegedly running over her boyfriend, police said, Morris exited the vehicle and attempted to attack the woman Smith was with at the time of the incident.
Morris originally was charged with murder.
She faces up to 30 years behind bars when she is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 21, WXIN reported.
