Hayden Man Convicted In Woman's Road Rage Death

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A Hayden man has been convicted of second-degree murder in the death of an Athol woman he ran over in his SUV on New Year's Day 2006.

The Spokesman-Review reports a jury on Tuesday found 51-year-old Jonathan W. Ellington guilty of intentionally killing 41-year-old Vonette Larsen.

He was previously convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison, but the Supreme Court cited prosecutorial misconduct in ordering a new trial. He remains free until he is sentenced March 26.

Kootenai County prosecutors say Ellington ran over Larsen during a road rage incident with her husband and two daughters.

Ellington's public defender says the family "hunted" Ellington but that Larsen's death was an accident during a chaotic situation.

Larsen's husband acknowledged shooting at Ellington's vehicle before his wife was run over.
