Miss. woman killed as police chase suspects

FLOWOOD, Miss. (AP) - A 31-year-old Rankin County woman is dead, and a convicted felon is in custody, charged with causing the accident that killed her as he allegedly fled police.

The Clarion-Ledger reports Milinda Clark was killed Sunday when her vehicle was struck in Flowood after a chase that began in Ridgeland.

Flowood Police Chief Johnny DeWitt says Robert Williams of Jackson will face charges including felony fleeing resulting in the death of another and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer once he is released from the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

DeWitt says Williams and Melinda Renae Rutherford of Ripley allegedly shoplifted from a Ridgeland business.

Police say Williams and Rutherford led police on a chase into Rankin County before ending in the fatal crash in Flowood.
