That makes a lot of sense
An Arabi man who pushed his girlfriend from his pick-up truck at a busy Metairie intersection, then ran over her in the street, remains in custody tonight as authorities considered how to book him in her death.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said detectives were talking to witnesses and trying to determine the intent of the driver, Lawrence Mangerchine, 37, of 447 Esteban St. Among the possible charges: manslaughter, vehicular homicide and negligent homicide.
"This is one of those cases where ... how you charge falls right on the middle of the fence," Normand said.
The victim, a 32-year-old woman from Metairie, died shortly after she was taken to University Hospital in New Orleans. Authorities have not released her name because relatives have not been notified of her death, Jefferson Parish's first homicide of the new year. link
I guess we can just assume that the relatives of a 32-year-old woman from Metairie who was seeing 37-year-old Lawrence Mangerchine of 447 Esteban St. in Arabi don't know her boyfriend's name.
