HOUSTON A man who ran over his wife and daughter following a domestic dispute last year was sentenced to 20 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to the crime.
It happened June 9, 2011 at the Westward Square Apartments on Gulfton, across the street from Benevidas Elementary School.
Witnesses said the couple was arguing around 2:30 p.m. when Tamiru Etana Gillede left the complex, but came back and drove up on a sidewalk, striking the woman and child.
The 10-year-old daughter, identified as Dibora Kasaye, was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital with severe head injuries. The wife, 29-year-old Alemestayhey Kasaye, was taken to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital with a broken jaw and other injuries.
Gillede had been charged with aggravated assault and injury to a child.
