SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Police in Pennsylvania say a man who cut his girlfriend’s brake lines trying to get a piece of pipe for crack smoking faces homicide charges after she lost control of the car, crashed into a tree and died.
John Jenkins, of Dunmore, is being held without bail in the Aug. 22 death of 38-year-old Tammy Fox.
A witness says the car was traveling about 60 mph and the brake lights flashed, but it never slowed down before the crash.
