North Dallas, TX – A 23-year-old woman has been arrested on a murder charge nearly four months after police say she fatally ran over her boyfriend.
Margaret Ruth Mankin was booked into the Dallas County jail Thursday morning. Her bail is set at $100,000.
Police were called to the 6500 block of Cliffbrook Drive, near Hillcrest and Spring Valley Roads in Far North Dallas, around 3:30 a.m. June 1 and found 23-year-old Eric Ian Jones lying unresponsive in the street. Dallas Fire-Rescue determined that he was dead.
Detectives later discovered that Jones had a vehicle registered to a Richardson address, according to an arrest-warrant affidavit. A man who answered the door told police that Jones was his daughter’s boyfriend, and that she had told him that morning that they’d gotten into a fight and she “pushed him out of the car last night and is afraid she killed him.”
