FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WGHP) — An NC woman is facing a murder charge after allegedly running over and killing a man with her car, according to the Fayetteville Police Department.

Police say that on April 24., Khaleeta George Gethers, 28, “deliberately” struck Jarod Perry, 20, with her car on the 3500-block of Boone Trail.

Police say that Perry suffered “life-threatening injuries” and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Perry would later die of the injuries he sustained in the incident.

Gethers initially faced the following charges:

  • Attempted first-degree murder
  • Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury

Once Perry died, police say that they dismissed those charges and upgraded them to one count of first-degree murder.

Gethers is currently being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center under no bond.
