Trial continues for woman accused of running over her husband

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

LEE COUNTY (WTVM) - The case of a Smiths Station wife who is accused of running over her husband, a Fort Benning specialist, continues.

On Wednesday, the jury learned that the defendant was high on meth on the night she allegedly killed her husband.

The state's DNA expert testified fluid belonging to the victim Michael Andrews was found behind the front tire of his wife's car. This was the same night she allegedly ran over him while he was on his motorcycle.

However, a hair sample taken by investigators from underneath the defendant's car could not be linked to the victim by DNA.

The defense claims Tiffany Andrews was following her husband in her car the night he died, but she had nothing to do with her husband's fatal motorcycle accident.

The prosecution claims Andrews was angry her husband was going to divorce her, so she killed him to collect his military life insurance policy.

A forensic examiner testified Andrews' cause of death was blunt force trauma, specifically a broken neck.

The testimony didn't favor either side as the examiner testified a motorcycle accident or being run over by a car could cause those injuries.

This case will continue on Thursday. Check back to News Leader 9 for the latest updates.
