HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A woman was indicted for murder for a fatal road rage incident that happened last year.
A Harris County Grand Jury just sent up an indictment charging Crystal Scott with murder during a road rage incident with Jonathan Ables last year.
Scott claimed that she fatally shot Ables out of self-defense after she told deputies that the two had taken turns cutting in front of one another while driving.
It was then that both Scott and Ables’ cars clipped and both pulled into a gas station on FM 1960 near Perry.
Scott added that Ables approached her car and began yelling and banging on the vehicle. Scott, who has a license to carry a weapon, said she feared for her life after Ables’ violent outburst and then proceeded to shoot him in self-defense. He later died as a result of being shot.
At the time of the incident, Scott was questioned and released. One eyewitness provided a statement that was consistent with Scott’s claim that Ables was the aggressor in the incident.
However, Ables’ family reportedly stated that he never threatened Scott.
