DALLAS (KRLD) - A 29-year-old woman has been arrested after police say she pushed a man into oncoming traffic near a Lake Highlands apartment complex Tuesday night. 

Connally Klein, 52, was hit by a car near the intersection of Skillman Street and Royal Lane in northeast Dallas around 9:15 p.m. 

Investigators determined Klein was intentionally pushed into the roadway. He died from his injuries.

Quantara Melton was found nearby, where police say she was arrested on warrants unrelated to Klein’s death.

After speaking with detectives about Klein’s death, Melton was charged with murder. A motive for the attack has still not been determined.

She was booked into the Dallas County Jail, where records show she was being held on a total of $253,000 bond.
