Attention people who have known me for awhile: Does this sound like anyone I used to be married to?
PEORIA -- A Pekin man died Monday from injuries suffered when his ex-wife rammed him with a car in what relatives say was an alcohol-fueled jealous rage.Oh, that last part is cold. Thank goodness I never got in front of a car driven by my ex. Usually when things started breaking outside my residence, I called the cops and hid under the bed.
Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said Dennis McGlothlin, 26, was pronounced dead at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, where he underwent brain surgery after he was run down Friday in a parking lot outside the Pekin apartment of a woman he was visiting.
Krystle McGlothlin, 25, of Pekin, remained jailed on $300,000 bond Monday at the Tazewell County Justice Center on charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated driving under the influence and criminal damage to property.
Authorities say Krystle McGlothlin showed up at the woman's apartment early Friday, yelling obscenities and screaming for her ex-husband to come outside as she battered his pickup truck with an unidentified object.
Dennis McGlothlin came outside after his ex-wife allegedly smashed a patio window at the ground-floor apartment, authorities said.
After backing into a car parked behind her, she accelerated forward and rammed her ex-husband, smashing his head to the ground, witnesses told police in Pekin, which is about 10 miles south of Peoria.
Witnesses said Krystle McGlothlin then fled, but returned minutes later to take something out of her ex-husband's pocket as he lay bleeding in the small parking lot, authorities said.
