The incident occurred on Saturday, August 20, when the Prince George’s County Police Department responded to a call at approximately 8:45 p.m. to reports of a person being trapped underneath of a vehicle outside of a home in Brandywine, Maryland — about 22 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.

But when police arrived they found the victim — later named as 40-year-old Shamatto Clark of Riverdale, Maryland — deceased at the scene after allegedly being purposefully run over by his girlfriend, 38-year-old Udele Burno of Brandywine, Maryland, police say.

“The preliminary investigation suggests Burno intentionally struck the victim with her car, causing fatal injuries,” Prince George’s County said in a blog post announcing the incident on Thursday.

Police did not disclose a possible motive in the killing or if either of the individuals involved were previously known to authorities.

Burno has since been charged with vehicular manslaughter and is currently in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no-bond status. It is unclear if Burno has obtained legal representation at this time.
