Video: Arizona Woman Runs Over Boyfriend After He Revealed Being HIV Positive
Misty Lee Wilke, 43, of Phoenix has since been jailed following the ordeal, which the man survived but was left suffering a fractured vertebra and a head injury requiring staples, according to Fox 10.
The series of events leading to the April 29 incident began after Wilke and her boyfriend got into an argument that morning after he told her he was HIV positive, court records indicated.
Wilke told police that prior to the alleged hit-and-run, her boyfriend was laughing after breaking the news to her and attacked her with a pocket knife, cutting her arm, Fox 10 reported.
Police later responded to a report of a man struck by a vehicle at a park near 13th Street and Hatcher Road.
