PITTSBURGH - A woman was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for running over and killing her boyfriend.

Police said a camera aboard a Paulson Avenue Port Authority bus captured Damona Anderson, 40, run down Dwan Jones.

The video shows a startled bus driving throwing up her hands and radioing for help.

Police said Anderson is seen in the video taking money from Jones.  According to police, she left the scene, returned to the scene to take more belongings and left a scarf to stop his bleeding.

Jones died two months later from head injuries.

Anderson said it was an accident, but District Attorney Stephen Zappala believed she should have been found guilty of murder.

Assistant District Attorney Ed Scheid told the judge Anderson called 911 but didn’t wait for police to arrive.

According to our partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Anderson told the judge she was trying to prevent Jones from boarding a bus to evade police responding to a domestic dispute.

The judge in the non-jury trial found her guilty of the lesser punishment, involuntary manslaughter.

Jones was the father of her seven children.

Sentencing is scheduled for August.  Anderson faces up to five years in prison.
