PHOENIX (AP) -

An April 21 trial has been set for a Mesa woman accused of running over her husband with an SUV because he didn't vote in the 2012 presidential election.

Holly Nicole Solomon, 31, has pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and disorderly conduct charges in the incident just days after President Barack Obama's re-election.

Authorities say Solomon was upset about Obama's re-election and began arguing with her husband when she found out that he didn't vote.

Her husband, who suffered a fractured pelvis, told investigators that Solomon believed their family was going to face hardship as a result of Obama's election.

Solomon told police she was trying to scare her husband by stopping the vehicle close to him but she accidentally stepped on the accelerator and struck him.
