Man Left to Bleed to Death in Windshield Thu Mar 7,11:43 AM ET
FORT WORTH, Texas (Reuters) - A Texas nurse's aide faces murder charges after hitting a man as she drove and then letting him bleed to death over two to three days while he was trapped in her car's windshield, police said on Thursday.
Gregory Glen Biggs, 37, was hurled headfirst through the windshield by the impact, his broken legs lying across the car's hood, Fort Worth police spokesman Lt. Jesse Hernandez said.
Chante Mallard, 25, told investigators she panicked after hitting the man on a Fort Worth highway near her home one night last October. She drove to her house, parked the car in her garage and ignored his pleas for help, police said.
Biggs, who lived in a city homeless shelter, died of blood loss and shock over the course of two to three days, according to the coroner's report. He probably would have survived with medical attention, police said.
Mallard was arrested on Wednesday after police received a tip in the investigation that started with the discovery of Biggs' body in a park, where it was apparently dumped after he died.
"I'm going to have to come up with a new word. Indifferent isn't enough. Cruel isn't enough to say. Heartless? Inhumane? Maybe we've just redefined inhumanity here," Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Richard Alpert told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which first reported the arrest.
Mallard told police she had been drinking and taking the drug Ecstasy before the accident.
Police said a search of Mallard's home found the car still in the garage with the windshield broken and blood and hair evidence intact.

It must have been hard for her to go to sleep. If he somehow got loose, he might have killed her for being such a ruthless bitch.

Chante ain't the only strange one. Another account notes that two friends helped her dump Biggs' bod. Seats removed from the Chevy & burned in the back yard. What a treat.
