Windshield Death Case Nets Guilty Verdict

June 26, 2003 - Posted at: 12:05 p.m. CDT

FORT WORTH, Tex. -- A jury has convicted former nurse's aide Chante Mallard of murder in the killing of a man left to bleed to death in the windshield of her car.

Jurors deliberated for about an hour before returning the guilty verdict.

Mallard admitted hitting the victim while driving drunk in 2001 and leaving him stuck in the windshield in her garage.

The defense had argued Mallard had simply failed to aid the victim -- and that it didn't amount to murder.

But prosecutors said she had done much more. She made a choice, said prosecutor Christy Jack, ``to conceal Greg Biggs from anyone who could help him.''

Mallard, who's 27, faces a possible life prison term. She's also facing a sentence of up to ten years for concealing evidence, which she pleaded guilty to earlier this week.
