Woman Arrested After Allegedly Running Over, Killing Boyfriend
Officers on Wednesday night arrested a woman whom they suspect of
running over and killing her boyfriend after a quarrel in a Hercules parking
lot, according to police.
Police say Desire Borela got into an argument with a man she was
dating, identified by the Contra Costa County coroner’s office as 22-year-old
Ian Irby of Hercules, and then ran him down in the parking lot of a
condominium complex in the 100 block of Glenwood.
A witness called police at about 5:20 p.m. to report that a woman
who turned out to be Borela was driving in circles with a man trapped under
the car, police said.
Officers arrived about four minutes after the initial call but
Borela had already fled, according to police.
The 2006 Nissan Maxima she was driving was found abandoned on
Village Parkway near the entrance to the condo complex.
At about 8:30 p.m., Borela walked into the Hercules Police
Department to turn herself in.
She was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and taken to
county jail in Martinez.
