PHOENIX — Authorities say a man has been arrested for allegedly running over his girlfriend in the parking lot of a Phoenix club.

Police say 26-year-old Ricardo Garcia is being held on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and four counts of aggravated assault.

They say 28-year-old Anjelica Moraga died of her injuries at a hospital early Sunday.

According to police, Moraga and Garcia argued late Saturday night and he rammed into his girlfriend’s vehicle.

Inside the car were two other adults and Moraga’s two children.

Police say Moraga was outside of her vehicle in the parking lot when Garcia allegedly ran her over with his car.

Garcia was located in a nearby alley and arrested.

It was unclear Monday if he has a lawyer yet.
