Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police responding to the parking lot at Tilly’s Pub around 12:30 a.m. on June 3, 2022, 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 originally was charged with murder and in August 2023, a jury found her guilty of voluntary manslaughter.

A judge recently sentence Morris to 18 years in prison for the death of her boyfriend, WTHR reported.

During her sentencing hearing, Morris said, "I just want to apologize to Andre's family for the hurt and pain that I caused, and to his daughter. I understand that this is a tragic situation for everyone that sits in this court room, and I'm so sorry that I caused it. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would and it would be handled much differently, so differently. I'm praying for their strength, healing and recovery. Once again, I'm so sorry to his family. I'm very sorry. I apologize."
