A woman in Centereach, New York killed her fiancé while he was trying to protect her from drunk driving. 

Newsday reports that a witness heard Louis Weiderer tell Jesenia Vega she was going to get arrested if she tried to drive in her condition. Weiderer was leaning in the car’s window arguing with her.

After she screamed at him to leave her alone, she slammed on the accelerator, dragging Weiderer to his death.

Vega was arrested and charged with DUI (DWI in New York). She is likely to be charged with some form of manslaughter.
