    NC - Tabitha Heavner kidnapped and stabbed by ex, killed during escape

    A woman kidnapped from Catawba County jumped from a moving car on U.S. 321 and fought off a man stabbing her before she was struck and killed by an 18-wheeler, detectives said.

    Investigators said Aaron Compton Jr. bought a big knife at Walmart about an hour before he shattered his ex-girlfriend's bedroom window and climbed in around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday on Rocky Ford Road.

    Tabitha Heavner, 40, called 911
    Investigators said he then stabbed her and forced her into her car.

    Detectives said then Compton called 911 and promised he was going to take her to a hospital.

    Instead police said he drove down Highway 321 south.

    When they reached Gastonia, Heavner jumped out of the moving car into the path of traffic in an attempt to escape.

    The sheriff said Compton stopped the car, got out and "stabbed her a couple more times then. She was attempting to get away when she was struck by a semitruck."

    Police said Compton saw her get run over and then drove off.

    Most recent update I can find is a year old:

    The district attorney’s office announced it will seek the death penalty against Aaron Compton Jr., 50, for Heavner’s murder...

    In addition to murder, Compton is charged with felony counts of first-degree burglary, first-degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
