A southeastern Kansas woman is jailed on $1 million bond, accused of intentionally hitting and killing her boyfriend with a car after an argument.

The Independence Daily Reporter says 49-year-old Martin "Moochie" Dunn was pronounced dead Tuesday at an Independence hospital. His 21-year-old girlfriend was booked on suspicion of first-degree murder and made a first court appearance Wednesday.

Family members and Independence police say the two have a child together.

Witnesses said the pair argued in Dunn's yard about changing the oil in the woman's car. They said the woman got in the car and drove at Dunn, crossing a curb and striking him.

A large crowd of Dunn's family and friends gathered later at the hospital where Dunn died. Nearly 25 law enforcement officers were called to maintain order.
