SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A jury has reached a verdict in the trial of a woman accused of drunkenly dragging her co-worker with her car before fatally running him over in Kearny Mesa.
Latisha Ingram, 33, was convicted of second-degree murder, gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, hit-and-run and drunken driving in the death of 25- year-old Ha Minh Ta.
Prosecutors say Ingram, Ta, and a group of co-workers went out for drinks on Convoy Street last June, when Ingram tried to driver herself home. Ta tried to stop her, eventually grabbing the door of her car.
- Trial of woman accused of dragging co-worker to death in Kearny Mesa begins
- San Diego police: Man run over, killed after argument in Kearny Mesa parking lot
- Woman charged with DUI, running over co-worker in Kearny Mesa
- Hearing underway for woman who allegedly dragged co-worker to his death
That's when prosecutors say Ingram drove away, dragging and running over Ta, killing him.
During the trial, one witness described how drunk Ingram was:
"She was slurring her words and couldn't walk straight. She walked out of the crab hut restroom, she couldn't even button her pants herself," a co-worker who was with the group told the courtroom.
Ingram's attorney however argued that her client was only guilty of DUI vehicular manslaughter, not the murder charge she faced.
Ingram is set to be sentenced March 20.
