An Albuquerque man is now accused of running over his ex-girlfriend, killing her. 

Albuquerque Police have arrested Joseph Zamora in connection with an incident that took place Wednesday morning near Indian School and Pennsylvania. Witnesses say they saw Rosie Bowers fall out of a pickup truck at the intersection.

Investigators say Zamora ran over Bowers who died at the scene. Zamora then allegedly told officers he and Bowers had been arguing when she got out of his vehicle.

He then allegedly told authorities that he thought he ran over her backpack. Zamora has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving death.

Thursday in court, prosecutors filed a motion asking a judge to hold Zamora. The case now heads to District Court.
