JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro woman faces felony assault charges after police say she tried to run over her husband with an SUV.

On Monday a district court judge found probable cause to charge Cora Jones, 39, with aggravated assault on a family or household member, a class D felony.

If convicted, she could be fined up to $10,000 and be sentenced up to 6 years in prison.

Police arrested Jones after she was seen trying to run over her husband near Frierson and Rosemond, according to court documents.

Jones told the officers she had caught her husband “cheating.” When she confronted him, Jones said he gathered some things and left.

“Jones said she was so mad she followed him” in her Mercury Mountaineer and “attempted to run him over with the vehicle,” the affidavit stated.

At the time of her arrest, Jones told police she wanted her purse out of the vehicle.

When officers searched the purse at the jail, they reported finding two morphine pills.

Jones is also charged with possession of a Schedule I or II controlled substance, a class D felony.
