After shooting an Uber driver who she believed was kidnapping her, a US lady has been charged with murder, according to authorities.
Phoebe Copas feared she was being carried into Mexico, according to authorities in the border city of El Paso, Texas.
She then shot the driver, Daniel Piedra Garcia, according to a statement from the police.
After several days on life support, the 52-year-old passed away in the hospital.
Copas observed traffic signs that stated Juarez, Mexico while she was in the car, according to police records.
On either side of the US-Mexico border, the two cities are located next to one another.
In accordance with additional police documentation, Copas shot the driver in the head after believing she was being kidnapped. After hitting barricades, the automobile finally came to a stop.
Copas, who is from Kentucky but was visiting her boyfriend, is accused of calling 911 after snapping a photo of the driver and sending it to him through text.
According to an El Paso police statement, “the investigation does not support that a kidnapping occurred or that Piedra was deviating from Copas’ destination.”
