    Rhode Island Man Faces Domestic Murder Charge in Death of Girlfriend
    WJAR

    A Rhode Island man accused of killing his live-in girlfriend then telling investigators she had been struck by a car has been indicted on a murder charge.

    Attorney General Peter Kilmartin said Monday that 32-year-old Allen Hanson is charged with domestic murder in the May death of Jennifer Silva.

    Police say they responded to the couple's East Providence home, where they found Silva in a parking lot at the rear of the address. She died at the hospital.

    Hanson identified himself as Silva's boyfriend and said she had been hit by a car. But police determined that she was actually the victim of a "domestic violence altercation."
