    Rhode Island Man Charged with Murder In Girlfriend's Death

    A Rhode Island man has been charged with murder in the death of a woman found in the driveway of a home.

    Officers were called to an East Providence residence around 4 a.m. Saturday for a report of a person struck by a car. Police say they found Jennifer Silva and took her to Rhode Island Hospital where she later died.

    Police say officers located Allen Hanson next to Silva and he identified her as his girlfriend. They say an investigation determined Silva's injuries weren't from being hit by a vehicle but were the result of a domestic-violence altercation between her and the 31-year-old Hanson.

    Hanson is set to be arraigned Monday on domestic first-degree murder charges. It couldn't be determined Sunday if he has an attorney.
