– A man has been arrested and charged after a woman was run over and killed during a carjacking in east Houston on Tuesday.
Marcus Wayne Brock, 55, has been charged with capital murder.
The incident happened in the 500 block of Uvalde, in the parking lot of a church. Last Thursday, another woman was run over and killed after her purse was stolen near the McDonald’s in the same area.
Police said Brock stole a cell phone from an auto parts store and was chased by employees. Investigators said Brock ran across the street to a church where he jumped into a woman’s vehicle.
Officers said Brock tried to push the woman, later identified as 41-year-old Jessica Garza, out of her vehicle, but she had her seatbelt on. He then took off as the woman was trying to get out, hitting six or seven vehicles before ending up near the corner of Uvalde Road and Louisville Street.
