    The Suffolk district attorney's office says 47-year-old Xiao Ying Zhou, of Sandwich, pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury.

    Prosecutors say on Feb. 1, 2016, Zhou struck the 51-year-old victim and her husband as they crossed a Chinatown street.

    They say Zhou proceeded onto Interstate 93 with the victim lodged under her SUV. Witness said at one point Zhou exited her SUV, saw the victim, but kept driving.
