According to a news release from the Sierra Vista Police Department, witnesses told police that Hurdlow was chased to a Circle K on Buffalo Soldier Trail by a Ford Escape SUV.

His wife was driving the SUV.

Witnesses also said they heard Jones-Hurdlow screaming at Hurdlow, and saw her maneuvering her vehicle in an aggressive and reckless manner in an attempt to block him from leaving the Circle K.

Hurdlow managed to leave the property.

He headed east on Avenida Cochise, and with his wife allegedly continued to chase him at high speeds.

Witnesses told police they saw Jones-Hurdlow chase him through the Coronado Drive intersection and drive close to his motorcycle.

Hurdlow hit a light post at a high speed.

Experts estimated he was going more than 65 mph.

Investigators served a search warrant at the couple's home and found evidence of a domestic violence dispute, including broken household items.

They concluded that the high-speed chase and deadly crash resulted from an ongoing domestic violence argument.

Jones-Hurdlow is being held at the Cochise County Jail.
