Murder charge for woman who pinned her ex against carpark wall
A woman has been charged with murdering a man after she allegedly rammed him with a car in Sydney’s inner west on Sunday night.
Emergency services showed up to an apartment block on Hill Road in Wentworth Point at approximately 8:30 pm after hearing reports that a man had been struck down by a Toyota Kluger.
Police have said in a statement that the woman had been arguing with Payman Thagipur, who was her ex-partner.
They’d reportedly been in a verbal altercation in the carpark of the complex after she went to his apartment because another woman had been inside with him.
Witnesses say she stormed out of the apartment to the car park, where she promptly stepped into the vehicle and allegedly deliberately rammed into him.
Mr Thagipur was pinned against a brick wall, police say.
The 31-year-old was given CPR by paramedics and police but he was declared dead at the scene.
44-year-old Jackline Musa, who was the alleged driver in the incident, was arrested and taken to Concord Hospital under police guard to be treated for a fractured wrist.
She also was forced to undergo mandatory testing.
Ms Musa was taken to Auburn Police Station after being released from hospital, where she was promptly charged with domestic violence-related murder.
Police say the woman had been arguing with Payman Thagipur, her ex-partner, in the carpark of the complex after she went to his apartment because another woman had been inside with him.
Neighbours at the residence who were fixing a roller door at the time told 9News they witnessed the incident.
"(The) man's body was so badly mangled and bloody."
Police say there is no recorded history of violence between the pair.
Ms Musa was refused bail and was expected to appear before Parramatta Bail Court today.
