NEW BOSTON, Ohio (WSAZ) - Thursday, a woman is behind bars facing murder charges following an incident where she was accused of hitting a motorcyclist with her SUV and running over him multiple times.

According to Scioto County Sheriff David Thoroughman, his office was contacted on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, by New Boston Police Chief Carl Compton requesting that his office handle a death investigation.

Detectives were told an argument between the woman and the man involved began along Swauger Valley Road in Minford, Ohio.

Detectives say when the man left the area on his motorcycle, Brooklyn Maxine Frazie is accused of chasing after him in an SUV.

According to deputies, both were traveling at a high rate of speed on State Route 823 toward State Route 140 into Sciotoville, before entering U.S. 52 into New Boston.

Sheriff Thoroughman stated that his office received multiple 911 calls reporting a woman driving a SUV was chasing a man on a motorcycle, and that she was attempting to hit him. At approximately 6:40 p.m., 911 callers reported the SUV hit the motorcycle, causing it to crash.

Callers reported the woman driving the SUV intentionally ran over the man, dragging him, before running over him again.

The fatal incident happened in front of CVS Pharmacy along Gallia Street in New Boston.

Brooklyn Maxine Frazie, 41, of 83 Shumway Hollow Road, Portsmouth, Ohio was arrested, according to the sheriff’s office.

Frazie has been charged with two counts of murder, a felony of the 1st degree, and one count of reckless homicide, a felony of the 1st degree.

The collision happened outside Danielle Bender’s house.

“I’ve never come outside and witnessed the scene we saw,” she said. “It was terrible. It’s something I hope we never, ever have to see again. It definitely was traumatic for everybody involved.”

Frazie appeared in Portsmouth Municipal Court on Thursday, September 28, and was allowed to sign her bond for the reckless homicide and given a $100,000 bond on the murder charges.

The victim has been identified as Darrell Scott Donahoe, 44, of 83 Shumway Hollow Road, Portsmouth.
