PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman ended up in jail after she asked Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies to kick her boyfriend out of her apartment.
But the call for help Monday night backfired when her boyfriend told deputies 33-year-old Heather Lynn Mayo was the driver in a hit-and-run crash that killed a Pinellas Park woman in February.
The St. Petersburg Times reports that Mayo told deputies she was afraid of her boyfriend. Deputies say Robert Worden agreed to leave, but implicated Mayo in the crash that killed Jeannie Fisher. He pointed out damage to a vehicle matching the description of the one that hit Fisher.
Deputies called Pinellas Park officers who interviewed Mayo. They say she confessed.
She was arrested and faces felony charges of leaving the scene of a fatal crash.
