Cherelle Baldwin, 21, of Bridgeport Connecticut has been charged with murder after police said she ran over her ex-boyfriend and father of her child with her car.
Baldwin is accused of killing 24-year-old Jeffrey Brown, her ex-boyfriend and the father of her child. According to police, she was arrested Monday after a three-week investigation found no evidence to support her various accounts of what had happened.
ABC News reported Brown was pinned between Baldwin’s car and the cinder-block garage wall by the time police and firefighters arrived to the scene.
The report continued to say:
“Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, police said. Baldwin suffered a leg injury when the car hit Brown and the wall”.
The investigation that led to Baldwin’s arrest found that her car traveled 100 feet before striking brown. According to police, the car was accelerating the entire time and there were no signs of her braking.
Kaempffer continued on to say that “the vehicle pushed in the cinder-block wall more than 10 inches.”
The Connecticut Postreported,
“The accident reconstruction specialists from the Trumbull Police Department assisted Bridgeport detectives and determined that the Pontiac Baldwin was driving traveled about 100 feet, accelerating all the while, before plowing into Baldwin, Kaempffer said, adding that “there was no sign she attempted to brake.”
The report continues on to say that, “Bridgeport Police Chief Joseph Gaudett Jr. credited Detective Hector Teixeira for bringing about Baldwin’s arrest.”
Gaudett said that Teixeira interviewed a large number in order to get a clear understanding of what had happened.
Gaudett also said that the work done by the crime scene unit and accident investigators was “key to getting the truth.”
“Relatives of Brown told News12 that Brown was the father of a 2-year-old son with Baldwin,” according to the Connecticut Post. The boy was not in the vehicle at the time of the incident.
