Dennis McGlothlin, 26, married his wife Krystle McGlothlin, 25, in 1999. The couple had two children together ages 7 and 8 years old. Though they divorced several years ago, they lived together- for the sake of the children according to Dennis McGlothlin’s family.
Reportedly on Friday Dennis McGlothlin went to visit a female friend at her apartment. And allegedly Krystle McGlothlin showed up in the parking lot screaming for her ex-husband and yelling obsentities.
Allegedly she smashed the windows in Dennis McGlothlin’s truck, and battered it with an unidentified object. Dennis McGlothlin came out of the building after she broke the patio window of a ground floor apartment.
When he came out of the building, she allegedly backed up, ramming another vehicle. She then accelerated forward and struck her ex-husband knocking him to the ground where he struck his head. She then fled the scene.
However she returned. And she went back to where her ex-husband lay and reportedly took something out of his pocket. Police arrived while she was still there, and police report that she admitted to them that she intended to strike her ex-husband with her car. Police also say she smelled of alcohol, but they declined to say what her blood alcohol content was. Dennis McGlothlin was unresponsive when police arrived and he was transferred to the hospital where he underwent brain surgery.
Dennis McGlothlin’s father has said that jealousy was the motive and “She was upset over the girl … If he hung around his friends too long and didn’t do what she wanted him to do, it was battle on the home front.”
Krystle McGlothlin was charged with attempted murder, aggravated driving under the influence and criminal damage to property. However those charges were dropped on Monday.
Monday, Dennis McGlothlin was pronounced dead. Hours later, Krystle McGlothlin was charged with first degree murder.
