Graphic video shows a woman whom police have identified as Misty Lee Wilke allegedly running over her boyfriend in retaliation after she found out that he is HIV positive.
The hit-and-run occurred on April 29 and was captured on surveillance video that was posted to YouTube.
According to KPNX, police say the violent incident was preceded by an argument between Wilke and her boyfriend.
The footage shows the man riding away on a bicycle just moments before a red Ford Mustang slams into him, sending his body several feet into the air. The driver is seen speeding away, as the man’s body lies on the pavement.
Wilke has since been indicted by a Maricopa County grand jury and charged with attempting to commit second-degree murder, leaving the scene, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, KPNX reports.
Despite the video, Wilke is pleading not guilty.
According to ABC15, Wilke called the police about thirty minutes after the incident and said that her boyfriend was laughing after disclosing he has HIV. Wilke said her boyfriend pushed her, pulled a knife on her, and cut her arm.
