BISMARCK (AP) — A Bismarck woman accused of crashing her vehicle into a house while chasing her husband has been found guilty of felony reckless endangerment.
The Bismarck Tribune reported a jury deliberated about two hours Wednesday before convicting Ella Bowen-Davis. She could face up to five years in prison.
Authorities said Bowen-Davis had three children in the back seat of her Suburban when she chased her husband in March 2011 and eventually crashed into a house. She said in court last year that her husband had taken their rent money. No one was hurt in the incident.
Bowen-Davis and her husband are scheduled for trial in August on insurance fraud charges related to the crash. Bowen-Davis also faces a trial next week for alleged fraudulent insurance claims on renter’s insurance policies.
