A traffic accident and a fatality that had no initial evidence of a direct connection now appear to have been linked to a domestic violence incident.
The case surfaced when Danyell Stanfield crashed her car at 38th and Pratt. The vehicle slammed into a home. Two men who live in that house brought Stanfield in from the cold, unaware that there was a dead body outside.
Charles Tolbert was the man who died.
According to police reports, Tolbert had ridden on the hood of Stanfield’s car for approximately one-half mile before the crash.
Stanfield told police she saw Tolbert (her boyfriend) holding a shiny object and she said she knew he had weapons.
The report also indicates that Stanfield had a blood-alcohol content of .237 which is nearly three times more than the legal limit for operating a car.
As of Wednesday, Stanfield had not been charged with a crime.
