UK: Woman Convicted Of Murder After Fatally Driving Over Her Fiancé In Jealous Rage

A woman who used her car “as a weapon” to kill her fiancé after a row at a party has been convicted of murder.

Alice Wood, 23, denied murder of Ryan Watson, aged 24, near their home in Rode Heath, Cheshire but was convicted of his murder.

Wood drove at Mr Watson three times before he was dragged for up to 160m (525ft) underneath the car, after he was seen flirting with another woman.

Shocking footage shows philosophy student Wood repeatedly driving at her fiancé as he straddles the bonnet. After striking Ryan, she knocked on a door and told the homeowner: “Please phone an ambulance. I think I’ve ran over my boyfriend.”

In separate footage, Wood can be seen crying and holding her hands up as she’s arrested on suspicion of murder.

Wood was convicted of murder following a trial at Chester Crown Court.

Jurors heard the pair were at a party in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, when the horror unfolded.

Ryan was pulled under the front bumper and remained trapped under the car’s chassis for almost 160 metres.

The court heard Wood was found to be over the legal limit of alcohol in her blood. She claimed she had drunk two glasses of white wine, rum and a glass of champagne.

During her evidence, Wood sobbed as she told how it was like “stepping into a nightmare” when she realised Ryan was under her car.
