Trial delayed for woman accused of running over husband
By Andrew Michalscheck
PHOENIX (AP) -- Trial has been delayed for a woman accused of running over her husband with an SUV because he didn't vote in November's presidential election.
Authorities say 29-year-old Holly Nicole Solomon of Mesa was upset about President Barack Obama's re-election and began arguing with her husband on Nov. 10 when she found out that he didn't vote.
Daniel Solomon, who suffered a fractured pelvis, told investigators that his wife believed their family was going to face hardship as a result of Obama's election. Holly 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.
She had been set for trial Wednesday. Court documents show the case has been delayed while Solomon undergoes a competency evaluation.
