The driver, who is the father of the woman’s 4-month-old baby, is charged with driving drunk. The family of the Woonsocket mother, Alexandra Patten, tells ABC6 News the two were fighting when the car crashed into a telephone pole on Mendon Road.

“It hurts to my soul. I am empty and I am asking for help from something greater than me,” says Patten’s grandmother, Muriel Grady.

Grady tells ABC6 News that she still can’t wrap her head around what she was told about the moments leading up to the accident.

“I found out that he had slapped her. They were arguing when the accident occurred, and she was crying,” says Grady. “I believe now that he murdered my granddaughter.” … MORE
