HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A Conroe woman is facing charges after running over her husband, consequently killing him.

According to reports, the incident happened just after 7 p.m. on Saturday. Fifty-six-year-year-old Ruthie Cook-Scheer walked out of her home located on San Jacinto and got into her car to leave. Authorities believe that she was intoxicated at the time. Her husband, 66-year-old Frank Scheer, came out of the house and started talking to her.

The couple began to discuss a credit card when the discussion ended with Cook-Scheer backing over her husband and pinning him under the car. Conroe police arrived at the scene removing Scheer from underneath the vehicle. Moments later, emergency crews arrived at the house and attempted to save his life; they were not able to do so.

The husband’s body was transported to a hospital, pending an autopsy. Officials charged Cook-Scheer manslaughter. No other information was available at the time of this report.
