HCSO: Man runs over wife

Husband charged with DWI in her death

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A woman is dead after being run over by a pickup truck driven by her drunk husband, deputies said.

Harris County deputies said the woman, Karen Miller, 50, was in the truck with her husband, Anthony Miller, on Saturday night.

Investigators said the couple was arguing while driving on Springlea Street and Shay Lane.

For some reason, Miller, 51, said his wife jumped out of the moving pick up and his wheels rolled over her. She died from her injuries.

Deputies said Anthony Miller was drunk at the time of the incident.

In court Sunday, a magistrate judge said, "He was observed to have bloodshot, watery eyes and slurred speech. He was unsteady swaying from side to side. He refused to provide a sample of his blood."

He was charged with driving while intoxicated.

Miller is out of jail after posting $5,000 bond Sunday.
