Bridgeport Woman Accused of Fatally Hitting Boyfriend With Car Found Not Guilty

The Bridgeport woman accused fatally slamming her car into her boyfriend years ago was found not guilty of murder, the Fairfield Clerk's Office confirmed. 

Cherelle Baldwin, 21, of Ash Street, was arrested in 2013 and charged with murder. Baldwin maintained that she rammed her car into the man because he was being abusive. 

Baldwin was accused of driving her Pontiac at her boyfriend Jeffery Brown and crushing him against a cinder-block garage wall. Police called the incident a domestic homicide.

The 24-year-old said she was acting in self-defense because Brown had chocked her with a belt before she hit him with her car. 

Last year, a hung jury has forced a judge to declare a mistrial for the case.
