DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say a man hit two women with his van, killing one of them during a dispute in Florida.
The Delray Beach Police Department told local media that 39-year-old Elson Silencieux had been doing work at the women’s house when the three began arguing on Friday.
Detectives say Silencieux then hit 59-year-old Marie Ambroise and her 28-year-old daughter with his Chevy van as he was leaving their house. Ambroise died after being taken to a hospital, and her daughter was treated and released.
The man fled the scene but was found and detained later in a neighboring city.
Delray Beach police continue to investigate the woman’s death.
