A New Jersey man who was stopped nearly two weeks ago in a car belonging to a woman found dead in her New Jersey apartment has been charged with her murder, Rowan Sheriff’s officials say.
A N.C. Highway Patrol trooper conducting a traffic stop on Interstate 85 in Rowan County spotted the silver Dodge around 4 p.m. on March 28.
The vehicle had blue lights in the front bumper area. The trooper attempted to stop the vehicle to further investigate, but the driver, later identified as Arturo Alomas, refused to stop.
A short chase ensued, the trooper tried to force Alomas to stop the vehicle by abruptly turning sideways, but the 33-year-old continued. Alomas hit a concrete barrier in the median just prior to the Julian Road exit, but regained control. He eventually struck the trooper’s patrol vehicle and came to rest on the shoulder of the exit ramp.
The trooper found a 2-month-old child in the car.
