'Drunk' Utah man, 38, is arrested after he 'ran over and killed his wife, 29' in airport parking garage after they returned from vacation with their young child 

A Utah man has been arrested after he ran over and killed his wife in a Salt Lake City airport parking garage while he was under the influence of alcohol, police said. Shawn Christopher Sturgeon, 38, of Taylorsville, was arrested on Monday after police say he ran over his wife Charlotte, 29, on the second level of the North Parking Plaza at the Salt Lake City International Airport around 2.30pm. Charlotte was transferred to a hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. Shawn was booked into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail with no bond on one count of automobile homicide - criminal negligence DUI of alcohol/drug, according to Salt Lake City Police Department. He allegedly backed up roughly 10 feet before stopping and putting his wife into the front passenger seat and driving to get help. 'Shortly after the crash, Sturgeon drove the vehicle, with his wife critically injured inside, to the airport parking payment booths where he asked for help. Officers with SLCPD’s Airport Division contacted Sturgeon before he exited airport property,' police said. He reportedly told police that he 'accidentally ran her over,' and authorities determined he was under the influence of alcohol as he had an 'odor coming from his mouth and glassy bloodshot eyes.' Paramedics were called and attempted to perform life-saving efforts in the parking garage and at the hospital on Charlotte, but she did not survive, police said in the statement. Source
