    Bergen County authorities say a man who repeatedly ran over his estranged girlfriend this week and then fled to New York has been returned to New Jersey to face a murder charge.

    Charles Ann remained jailed Saturday on $3 million bail. He's charged in the death of 25-year-old Aena Hong, who was killed Monday on a Fort Lee street.

    Witnesses say the couple had been arguing before Ann drove away. He then allegedly turned around and rapidly accelerated before running over Hong as she was crossing an intersection. He then put the car in reverse and ran over her body three times.

    Prosecutors say Ann soon abandoned the car and fled to Queens, N.Y. where he was arrested Tuesday. He was brought back to New Jersey on Friday afternoon.
