CLEVELAND, Ohio — A 38-year-old Cleveland woman was shot about 3 a.m. and pushed from a car on East 83rd Street near Woodland Avenue, police said.
Police were called and found the woman in the street. She was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she died.
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the woman as Diana Fields-Edmonds.
She was a passenger in a vehicle at the time of the shooting, which occurred on East 83rd, police spokeswoman Jennifer Ciaccia said.
“At some point between Cedar and Woodland avenues, shots were fired from outside the vehicle,” Ciaccia said. “The victim was then pushed from the vehicle, along with her purse, and the driver left the scene.”
CLEVELAND, Ohio – A Cleveland man was sentenced to life without parole for the vicious slaying of his wife, whom he shot twice then dumped her body in the street and drove over it with her car.
Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Dick Ambrose ordered Antonio Hicks, 36, to prison in the slaying of Diana Fields-Edmonds on Dec. 21. Within moments of Ambrose’s sentence, family members of Fields-Edmonds clapped and one yelled, “There is a God.”
The sentence came after a two-week trial in which a jury convicted Hicks on Thursday of aggravated murder, felonious assault and weapons charges. Hicks told Ambrose that he didn’t shoot his wife.
