One man is dead and another man was critically injured Wednesday after a woman intentionally hit them with her vehicle outside a Kroger store, police say.
One of the victims, Christopher Scott Griffith, 58, was still recovering from a motorcycle crash in 2013 that initially had left him paralyzed from the neck down. Griffith’s brother, Greg, tells WCPO that Christopher had improved enough to walk with a cane.
Taah’viya Chapman, 24, of Avondale, was arrested Wednesday night on two counts of felonious assault and one count of child endangering, Fox 19 reports. She is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning on a murder charge, WCPO reports.
According to reports, the two victims, one of whom is the father of Chapman’s child, were outside the Kroger at about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday when they were hit by the vehicle. Fox 19 reports Chapman’s 7-month-old baby was in the vehicle when the incident occurred.
Fox 19 reports Chapman was involved in a custody dispute in April involving another of her children, a 4-year-old girl.
Griffith was taken to a hospital after he was hit but died just before 1 a.m. Thursday, reports say.
Greg Griffith tells WCPO his brother was a sound engineer for several famous acts, including Harry Connick Jr., Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Prince, The Temptations and the Four Tops.
“I don’t understand why someone would do this,” Greg tells WCPO. “I really want her to pay for what she’s done. I mean the maximum penalty, whatever the murder charge is going to be, that she pays for this. This is senseless.”
