MARIETTA, Ga. – Police have arrested a man who they accuse of killing his wife and running her over in the front yard of their home.
William Hughes, 32, was taken to the Cobb County Jail on Tuesday, the same day the body of Jacqueline Kay Hughes, 42, was found in front of their home.
Authorities say William Hughes killed his wife by striking her with a pipe. He is also accused of using their 1982 Chevrolet Caprice Classic station wagon to run her over.
Jacqueline Hughes’ body was found Tuesday morning when a school bus driver noticed her lying in the driveway.
Three elementary school students were aboard the bus at the time. But Marietta City Schools spokesman Thomas Algarin said he did not think the students saw the body.
Hughes has been charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and cocaine possession.
