Conn. Woman Accused of Crushing Her Ex-Boyfriend with Car

Police Crime Scene
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Relatives of a Connecticut woman charged with killing her ex-boyfriend with her car say he had choked her with a belt and she drove at him to try to save her life.

Twenty-one-year-old Cherelle Baldwin of Bridgeport was arraigned on a murder charge in state court Tuesday in the death of 24-year-old Jeffrey Brown, the father of her toddler son. She’s detained on $1 million bail.

Police say Baldwin ran down Brown with her car and crushed him against a wall in Bridgeport on May 18. She was arrested Monday after a three-week investigation.

Baldwin’s cousin tells WFSB-TV that Baldwin and Brown had a history of domestic violence and Baldwin was trying to save her own life after being choked by Brown. Brown’s family denies that claim.
