Motorist Guilty in Windshield Murder

Thursday, 26 June 2003 12:00 AM

Chante Mallard, a 27-year-old nurse's aide, could receive up to life in prison in the October 2001 death of Gregory Biggs, who had been homeless for about two months. She could have been convicted on a lesser charge of failure to render aid.

Mallard drove home with Biggs' body lodged in the windshield and then parking the car in her garage where medical experts said he died.

Dr. Nizam Peerwani, Tarrant County chief medical examiner, testified Biggs "theoretically could have survived for hours" after he was hit by Mallard's car. Defense attorneys argued Mallard believed he was already dead when she drove home.

Prosecutors said Mallard's failure to render aid constituted the intention to commit murder. Her attorneys said she was high on Ecstasy, marijuana and alcohol after a night of partying and didn't know what to do when she hit Biggs.

A fact that many media are refusing to report about the case: Mallard, who is black, giggled as she told friends several months later,

She has never, however, been charged with a "hate crime."
