KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 29-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in the death of transgender woman who a witness said was intentionally run over several times and left to die.

Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced Monday that Luis M. Sanchez was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

Sanchez is accused in the Aug. 15 death of 36-year-old Tamara Dominguez. Court records indicate a video showed Dominguez getting into a truck. Authorities say a witness saw the victim get out of the vehicle and slam the door before walking away. The witness said he saw the vehicle run over Dominguez several times.

Charges against Sanchez were unsealed Friday after he was arrested in Colorado.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $250,000.
