LAS CRUCES, NM (KDBC) — A woman found drunk on the side of the road was attempting to revive her boyfriend when officers arrived, Las Cruces police said. According to the report, she ran her truck over the man during a dispute early Wednesday morning.
Annette Larson Fuschini, 38, has been charged with an open count of murder and aggravated driving while intoxicated.
Fuschini's boyfriend, Carlos Nevarez Jr., was transported to Mountain View Regional Medical Center where he was subsequently pronounced dead. Nevarez, born June 12, 1971, had just turned 42.
Detectives said that Fuschini and Nevarez were partying at a friend's home Tuesday evening. At some point during the evening Fuschini and Nevarez began arguing and, at around midnight, they left together with Fuschini driving her white 2008 Chevrolet pickup westbound on Main Street.
LCPD detectives determined that the couple continued arguing and on the 2900 block of north Main Street Nevarez exited the pickup and began walking away. Witnesses told detectives that Fuschini then ran over Nevarez and continued driving a short distance before walking back to check her boyfriend.
Fuschini was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center without bond.
