Phoenix Authorities spokesperson Sgt. Jonathan Howard said Anjelica Moraga discovered her live-in partner, Ricardo Garcia, in the parking lot of the club at 3400 South Central Opportunity just before 11 p.m. Sunday night.
Moraga and Garcia began to argue, said Howard, it escalated to the point when Garcia backed his cars and truck up and hit Moraga’s car causing small damage. Howard stated that Moraga’s two kids remained in the vehicle in addition to another adult when all this was happening.
At some point Moraga got out of her car and was in the parking lot when Garcia then purposefully ran her over with his car, said Howard. Garcia then left the scene.
Moraga was taken to a local medical facility where she died of her injuries, said Howard.
A short while later, police were called to an alley near First Opportunity and Apache where Moraga’s family had located Garcia and were combating with him in the car. Cops were able to jail Garcia without further incident, said Howard.
Garcia was booked for one count of first-degree murder and four counts of worsened assault.
