On Sunday morning, Brian E. Hurdlow, 51, left the couples’ residence for a nearby convenience store on his motorcycle, according to the Sierra Vista Herald. Jennie Jones-Hurdlow, 37, followed her husband to the Circle K in her SUV, where they had a heated exchange of words, according to witnesses.
The Sierra Vista Herald reports that Jones-Hurdlow made multiple attempts to block her husband’s exit from the parking lot.
Hurdlow managed to get by his wife and ride his motorcycle down Avenida Cochise. She pursued him, following dangerously close to his motorcycle. The Sierra Vista Herald reports that Jones-Hurdlow was driving erratically, at high speeds, and in very close proximity to her husband’s motorcycle before the wreck.
The fatal crash occurred near the intersection of Copper Sunrise, when Hurdlow struck a curb, lost control of the motorcycle, and flew off the motorcycle and into a lamppost. According to the Sierra Vista Herald, the couple was traveling at over 65 mph.
After several interviews, police arrested Jones-Hurdlow and charged her with manslaughter on Monday evening.
