LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been charged with murder after police say she intentionally hit her husband with a car on Monday, killing him.
According to an arrest report, it happened May 19 at the Incredible Dave's in the 9200 block of Westport Road, near Langdon Drive. That's where police say 28-year-old Toya Denise Mathis was driving a Dodge Charger in the parking lot of the business when she "intentionally struck the victim."
Mathis' husband has been identified as 31-year-old Thaddius Thomas, according to Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson.
According to the arrest report, Thomas flew 5-10 feet into the air and, "the impact caused the victim to strike the front of the car and to land on the parking lot."
Police say Thomas was unconscious and unresponsive when he was taken to University Hospital for treatment. He died on May 20 from his injuries.
Mathis was arrested early Wednesday. She's appeared before a judge Wednesday morning and pled not guilty to with first degree assault and murder. When the murder charge was read, Mathis appeared shocked. She is being held on a $500,000 full cash bond.
