SUPPLY, NC (WWAY) — A domestic assault turned deadly when a woman hit her boyfriend with her vehicle in Brunswick County last night.

It happened in Supply just before 10 p.m. Brunswick County deputies arrived at 1913 Oxpen Road after they got a call that a man was hit by a car.

When they arrived at the scene, Michael Anthony Pate, 52, was underneath the vehicle. Julie Ann English, 48, was also on the scene and was the driver of the vehicle that struck her boyfriend, Pate.

Neighbors said Pate and English had been dating on and off for around 10 years. They say the couple was constantly fighting and that something bad was bound to happen.

“There was a car in the yard and it had run up on the porch and we looked at the car and there was somebody laying under it,” said Sherry Bass.

Other neighbors, who remained off camera, said the couple was having a birthday party for Pate earlier that day. They say drugs and alcohol may have been involved.

After investigating, deputies found that Pate had allegedly assaulted English, leaving a laceration on her face. English was transported to the Brunswick NOVANT Medical Center, where she was treated and released to detectives.

English is being charged with voluntary manslaughter, and is in jail under a $100,000 bond.

it appears she immediately responded to his slap or whatever he did by running him down with a vehicle. That may explain why he went to the morgue rather than jail.

No you don’t hit a woman.. Bt you don’t run a man over and kill him. And you know what else you don’t do? You don’t comment on an article about a man who is killed asking why he isn’t jail. His family doesn’t need people judging him. Not only do you not know the story it’s completely rude and heartless of you to be insensitive about a situation like this when a man was murdered over a scratch on a woman’s face. You see that scratch on her face? At least she has a face left. At least she’s… Read more »

Why wasn’t Mr. Pate at jail for hitting this woman and why would you be with someone 10 years fighting all the time. I think both these people had some big problems.

“love makes u crazy sometimes”. Actually love does not make you crazy, drugs and alcohol do.

I am very crazy in love with my husband , I dont think running over him would show that very well.
