Cops: Drunken Arkansas Woman Fatally Runs Over Her Mother
Lisa Ann Casteel, 40, was charged with negligent homicide and driving while intoxicated. She was booked Wednesday for the May 17 accident and released on $3,000 bond.
Sheriff's deputies were told by witnesses that Casteel backed over her mother, Mary Jane Donn, 56, as Donn sat in a plastic chair in the driveway of a home where relatives had gathered, according to an arrest affidavit.
Casteel's sister, Lisa, told the deputies that Casteel thought her Chevrolet Blazer was in drive, not reverse, according to the affidavit.
Witness Michael Carey, who was named in the affidavit, said the group was at his house. He said people in the yard yelled "You killed grandma" at Casteel. Casteel got out of her SUV, checked on her mother, said "she's breathin'", then drove off, the affidavit said.
Casteel later returned to the house but was blocked by deputies when she tried to turn around and leave at the sight of their cruisers.
This incident should be called, "ya'll killed grandma."
