Wife Charged In Accident That Killed Husband

LITTLE EGG HARBOR, N.J. (AP) — Authorities in southern New Jersey say a 73-year-old man who was struck by a car driven by his wife has died from his injuries.

Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office says John McNulty of Little Egg Harbor died Friday afternoon, several hours after he was struck while walking to a nearby bus stop.

Witnesses said McNulty’s 54-year-old wife, Karen, drove the car near her husband before passing him. They said she then made a U-turn and hit him with the vehicle.

Karen McNulty was arrested at the scene and initially charged with aggravated assault. But that was upgraded Saturday to aggravated manslaughter, and she was jailed on $500,000 bail.

It was not known if McNulty had retained a lawyer.

    what people can do under stress, she should have left him, if that was her problem. momentary insanity.

    I LOVED THAT COMMENT ABOUT HER DRIVING SKILLS !!! THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN SEE THAT WAS NOT SUCH A GREAT DRIVING SKILL WAS SHE MISSED HIM THE FIRST TIME !!! SO I DO BELEIVE SHE DONE THIS ON PURPOSE FOR SOME ODD REASON AND ALSO IF SHE DID HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HER HUSBAND ,,WHY DID SHE NOT DO IT LEGALLY ????

  7. some1 says:

    this is absolutely crazy..she needs no bail because she did it on purpose.she needs to be dealt with according to the law.

  8. TEXAS GAL says:

    that poor man! i bet it was all about MONEY she was to gain!! why doesnt someone run over her. oopps! eye for an eye baby.

  9. Joe says:

    Must be a reason??

    If it was HE that ran over SHE would anyone care what HIS reason was?

  10. Esther says:

    How long have they been together? Was there an insurance policy? Was he going to need a nursing home soon that would eat up all their savings?

  11. zeny says:

    lets have the justice system decide on the case there must be a reason why she have done this to her husband.

  12. chicharito says:

    hey Mrs Weaver,i don’t think that is a good mindset cos if u try that,u’ll get the chance to stand behind bars too

  13. Tracy says:

    Hang her…. She turned around and went after him….

    1. Mike says:

      Mmm, no. With the “abuse excuse” that is surely to come up in court and her automatic “Female Discount” come sentencing time, I’d guess she gets time served and probation.

  14. Dia says:

    I understand the anger from public view about the death of this 73yrs gentleman and that caused by action of his 53yrs wife with un-professional driving skill.
    I share my condolonce & symphaty sincere.

    However ever. Allowe this 53yrs wife to tell her side of story of the event & lets not place hars judge because of age diffenrences.

  15. Jackson says:

    She may have just mistaken him for a mailbox!

  16. ANKO says:

    A PREPLANNED ACTION

  17. steve foster says:

    WOW,, This sounds like something my ex-wife would do !!!! Does this crazy lady have a sister named Barb ??????????

  18. svg says:

    Sounds like the husband is the lucky one.

  19. Carl says:

    We know Karen from work and she is nuts.

  20. tammac says:

    It sounds like it was an on purpose, not an accident. That is why she is being charged with a crime.

  21. BFR says:

    this does not sound like an accident

  22. SIMON UKOR says:

    THAT WOMAN DESERVED A GREAT PUNISHMENT FOR KILLING HER HUSBAND.

    1. Mrs. Weaver says:

      Most husbands deserve to be hit by a car at one time or another.

      1. Joe says:

        How about, “Most wives deserve to be raped at one time or another?”

        Idiot.
