Paragould Woman Charged with Manslaughter in Sunday Morning Incident

SEPTEMBER 18, 2006 - Posted at 8:47 a.m. CDT

 

SEPTEMBER 18, 2006 - A Paragould woman is charged with manslaughter for her alleged role in the death of another local woman who died Sunday morning.

At approximately 8:25 a.m. Sunday, Paragould police were dispatched to a disturbance call at 1700 Dennis Street.  Upon arrival, they found the body of 31-year-old Tammy Dell in the gravel driveway of the residence, with an apparent severe wound to the head.

Police allege that Dell had been involved in an altercation with 32-year-old Chastity Roach, who allegedly backed over Dell with a Ford SUV, knocking her to the ground and then backing over the victim's head.  PPD Detective Ken Jackson indicated that Roach was attempting to leave the residence as Dell attacked her.  Jackson said Roach then fled the scene, but was arrested later that morning at approximately 9:45 at 1000 Lonnie Lane.
