WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Prosecutors say a Mount Vernon woman accused of mowing down a love rival with her car has been indicted on manslaughter and other charges.
Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said Thursday that Carla Scott could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
Glynis Pinto was killed on April 18 in Yonkers.
Authorities say the driver struck Pinto, launching her onto the hood, then drove about 30 yards with her sprawled there. After that, the victim fell onto the road and was run over.
Scott was arrested several days later.
Her attorney, Arnold Kronick (KROH’-nihk), says Scott’s not guilty plea “speaks for itself.”
