OKLAHOMA CITY -

Chrysanthemum Ewertz, 29, did everything she could to hide her face from our News 9 camera as she was brought down to the Oklahoma County Jail to be booked in for first degree murder and DUI.

She is accused in the death of her longtime wife and partner Sabrina Ewertz who was 32.

Neighbors say the two had lived inside a home at Northwest 26th Street for years.

“They've been great neighbors,” said one neighbor who did not want to be identified. “It’s just really sad. They have fought before, but it’s just your basic couples quarrel.”

But other neighbors say the two quarreled a lot.

“The one that died threatened my wife and myself,” said another neighbor, who also did not want to be identified. He said he was not surprised when he saw police lights outside the couple's home. “I think the one that's in jail was really the victim most of the time.”

Police told News 9 in this case, the two women had a fight early Friday morning, and when Chrysanthemum tried to leave, Sabrina jumped on the car to stop her. But Chrysanthemum hit the gas.

“By doing so it threw the victim off the car and onto the pavement where she struck the ground and was killed,” said Msgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Knight said police responded after someone called 911 to report a woman was lying in the middle of the street and to check on her welfare. But there was nothing officers could do to save her.

Knight said a short time later, Chrysanthemum returned to the scene, to find police waiting and ready to question her.

She was taken to police headquarters and hours later officers arrested her.

As she was lead to the booking area, she kept her head down low and had her hair to shield her tears.

And though she did not answer News 9’s questions, she was obviously ashamed and devastated by the tragic turn of events.

Police said Chrysanthemum Ewertz has no prior arrests with their department.

She is yet to be formally charged.
