NJ Man Charged with Murder in Lover’s Death
A New Jersey man accused of running over his estranged girlfriend several times has been indicted on murder charges.
Charles Ann also faces a hindering apprehension charge in the indictment handed up Monday by a Bergen County grand jury. He remains jailed on $3 million bail.
Ann is charged in the Feb. 20 death of 25-year-old Aena Hong, who was killed on a Fort Lee street.
Witnesses say the couple had been arguing before Ann drove away. Witnesses say he then turned around and rapidly accelerated before running over Hong as she crossed an intersection. Investigators say he then put the car in reverse and ran over her body three times.
Prosecutors say Ann abandoned the car and fled to New York City, where he was arrested the next day.
