(Newser) – Police say an Arizona woman faces manslaughter charges for chasing down her husband in her SUV, causing him to crash his Harley-Davidson into a light post, the AP reports. Police say 37-year-old Jennie Jones-Hurdlow is responsible for the death of her husband, 51-year-old Brian Hurdlow, following a fight that began at the couple's home southeast of Tucson.

Witnesses told police in Sierra Vista they saw Jones-Hurdlow drive aggressively and erratically while trying to block her husband from leaving a store on Sunday. Hurdlow managed to leave on his motorcycle, but his wife chased him at high speeds. Police say he was driving over 65mph when he collided with a light post. Jones-Hurdlow was arrested on Monday and faces one count of manslaughter. (Read more manslaughter stories.)
