Police have arrested two suspects accused of running over and killing a woman in a Covington Walmart parking lot.
Authorities confirmed the arrests of Brandon Smith, 27, of West Virginia, and Stephanie Rodriguez, 37, of New Mexico. The suspects were taken into custody Saturday afternoon in Manchester, Tennessee and have been charged with Felony Murder.
Both Smith and Rodriguez were wanted for killing 65-year-old Marsha Penn Jonson after Smith allegedly backed his car over her when she refused to give up her purse on the night of November 16.
" She knows how I loved her. She knows how I loved her," said Johnson's niece Debra Ray.
Ray says she takes some comfort knowing the couple accused of murdering her aunt is behind bars.
"This is a sick world we live in today, and these people need to be taken off the streets," she said.
For Debra, the past 5 days have been torture... knowing the people who brutally killed her aunt were still out there.
"My heart is broken. I"ve watched the videos. I can't tell you how many times a day I have watched the videos," she said.
