SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA- A woman was convicted of killing a gambler she followed out of a casino after he won $10,000 and ran him over with a car.
Barbara Ann Hamel originally pleaded guilty and faced 15-years to life but rolled the dice and changed her plea to not guilty so she would go to trial. Now she faces life without parole.
Her boyfriend, Tad Carroll, pleaded guilty and got 25-years to life. They followed Chi Bui out of the Hawaiian Gardens Casino in Southern California five-years ago, knocked him down and Hamel rolled over his head with a car. A third accomplice got 15-years.
