Man runs over, kills wife after seeing her with her girlfriend

An Elgin man became so enraged when he saw his estranged wife with her female lover that he shattered her car window with a golf club and then ran her over with his SUV, according to the victim's lover and her aunt.

"He said: 'Bitch, I'm going to run you over,'" recalled the girlfriend who was with Frances McCoy, 28, when she was run down in her Hoffman Estates apartment parking lot on Friday afternoon. McCoy, the mother of two children, died Sunday afternoon from her injuries.

"He jumped the curb with his car and ran over her body," said the 27-year-old girlfriend, who wants to be known only as "Chanteuse."

"Then he sped off. He didn't even know if she still had life in her."

After she was hit, McCoy sat up and talked to her girlfriend. Another witness at the apartment complex called police. McCoy was taken to Advocate Lutheran General in Park Ridge, where she died.
