Police in southern Arizona arrested a woman suspected of running over a couple with her car during an argument on March 24.

"Officers learned that there was a confrontation in the parking. During the confrontation, the suspect struck the male and female victim with a vehicle before leaving the area on foot," says Sgt. Gradillas with the Tucson Police Department.

79-year-old Anthony Ames died from his injuries about a week later, and the other victim was seriously hurt.

She also had two outstanding warrants.
