A Houston woman is accused of murdering her husband by running him over repeatedly with her car.Police say the couple had been arguing while driving, and authorities believe the husband got out of the car to walk home.

"Somehow or another, he got behind the car. She backed up over him and ran him over. Then pulled forward and back over him again," described Harris County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Curtis Brown.

When police arrived, they found the wife still in the car and the husband underneath it.

The case is eerily similar to another one in Houston eight years ago when Clara Harris ran over and killed her husband after finding out he was having an affair.
