Anyone see this story?  What's the appropriate jail sentence? Her pit bulls running wild attacking her neighbor and his dog while drunk chickee screams "you better watch your back"....lather, rinse and repeat until restraining order.  Husband and wife nurses decide to move away rather than deal with her but she got drunk and ran them over purposely before they could make it happen.....guy dead, woman seriously f-ed up.

 

Now before you say you'd hit that, ask yourself if you'd want the crazy that's sure to come with it.

SEABROOK, N.H. —

A woman is facing murder charges after she was accused of running down her neighbors, killing a man and seriously injuring his wife.

NH attorney general's office

Catrina Costello, 38, is charged with reckless second-degree murder, two felony counts of second-degree assault, driving while intoxicated with serious bodily injury, conduct after an accident with serious bodily injury and three misdemeanor counts of violation of a stalking order of protection.

Authorities said Costello was under the influence of liquor at about 6:20 p.m. Wednesday when she struck Stephen and Erin VanDalinda and their pet dog with her vehicle. The husband and wife had been walking the dog on Pine Street.

Stephen VanDalinda, 64, was killed, while Erin VanDalinda, 61, suffered serious injuries and remains hospitalized, officials said. The dog also died of its injuries.

An autopsy showed that Stephen VanDalinda died of blunt-impact injuries to the head, trunk and extremities. Investigator said they believe Costello accelerated her vehicle toward the couple, struck them and then left the scene.

"So that is a charge of reckless second-degree murder, charging her with recklessly causing the death of Stephen under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life," Assistant Attorney General Geoff Ward said.

According to the attorney general’s office, Costello was issued a one-year stalking final order beginning Sept. 28, 2017, that ordered her to stay away from Erin VanDalinda and avoid stalking or abusing her household members or relatives. She was also prohibited from coming within 50 feet of Erin VanDalinda’s household animals.

Neighbors described the VanDalindas as a wonderful family with three grown children. Residents said the VanDalindas took out the restraining order against Costello after they accused her of threatening them in various ways, including bringing over pit bulls that attacked them and their dog.

"I'd come out, I'd hear some screaming and they'd be out there drinking and yelling across to Steve and Erin," neighbor Brian Henderson said. "They just had to get the restraining order because they felt threatened, but I didn't think they would think they'd be that threatened."

Neighbors said the VanDalindas were preparing to leave the neighborhood because of the problems.

"We were planning a going-away party for them," neighbor Dan Kaussner said. "They're moving because they wanted to get away from this bad blood between the neighbors. It's not right. It's just not right. It's terrible."

Costello waived arraignment Thursday afternoon in Rockingham County Superior Court and is being held without bail.

Authorities said the incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information or who may have witnessed the incident is asked to call Sgt. Marc Beaudoin of New Hampshire State Police at 603-223-8678.

Feel free to say it probably wasn't a pit bull, it's the owner's fault not the dog's, pit bulls are wonderfully gentle and loving pets that love to eat kids....errrr, protect kids......you know, the usual pit bull routine.

The eyewitness said the drunk trash chick saw the couple walking towards her and purposely detoured the long way around the development to approach them from behind and accelerated over them.
