A Maryland woman was convicted of involuntary manslaughter Monday after fatally running over her husband with an SUV in 2015.
Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks says she was surprised a jury chose not to convict a Lanham woman of murder despite a graphic video showing the suspect running her husband down with an SUV.
