BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A jury has cleared a Connecticut woman accused of murder charges after she rammed her boyfriend to death with her car.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1pOH2gP ) Thursday that a Bridgeport Superior Court jury found 24-year-old Cherelle Baldwin not guilty in the incident.

Baldwin says she was acting in self-defense when she ran down 24-year-old Jeffrey Brown with her car and crushed him to death against a cinder-block garage wall in Bridgeport in May 2013.

She said Brown had choked her with a belt before she hit him with her car.

Baldwin testified that she didn’t intend to kill Brown, but was trying to flee after he beat and choked her.



Last year a jury deadlocked on a verdict in the case.
