NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Trial has begun for a Philadelphia man accused of having stabbed and run over his ex-girlfriend in the parking lot of her suburban workplace.

Thirty-four-year-old Lawrence Crawley is charged with first- and third-degree murder in the death of 33-year-old Angela Stith.

Montgomery County prosecutors say Crawley stabbed her repeatedly in the Whitemarsh Township lot in August 2018, then drove a sport utility vehicle over her repeatedly as co-workers rushed to try to help.

A prosecutor said Tuesday the defendant was going to kill the victim “however he could.” The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that his attorney argues her client didn’t intend to kill the victim.
