An Arizona man allegedly hunted his girlfriend down with his car before fatally striking her with it as she tried to flee his presence after an argument.

Brandon Lewis St. Ours, 37, of Kingman has been booked on charges of manslaughter by domestic violence as well as leaving the scene of a fatal accident in connection with his girlfriend’s death on Saturday, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office stated in a press release.

Investigators responded to the scene that evening “to a motor vehicle vs. pedestrian collision where a female victim was located deceased in the roadway,” the release states. “The vehicle that struck the pedestrian had fled the scene after the collision and was later located in an obvious attempt to conceal it.”

The victim has been identified as Tasha Deann Childress, 31 of Golden Valley.  According to the investigative account, she died trying to remove herself from a volatile situation.

Investigators determined that Childress and St. Ours had “gotten into a verbal altercation” at a home before the pair were asked to leave the residence by a third party at the home. 

“Both subjects left the residence, however the female refused to get in Brandon's vehicle and walked from the scene,” the press release states. “Brandon drove around looking for the female, and ultimately struck her with the vehicle just a short distance from the residence. Brandon then fled the scene and parked his vehicle at another location in an obvious attempt to conceal it.”

Investigators then located St. Ours and questioned him about the fatal incident before he was taken into custody. His vehicle was located and towed for processing.

It’s not clear if St. Ours has an attorney.  The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office say the investigation is ongoing.
