A New Hampshire jury found Ivonne Hernandez guilty of second-degree murder for running over a man who had mocked her for rooting for the Yankees last May. After a fight erupted in a bar in Nashua, NH — which is reportedly "Red Sox country" — a group of Sox fans followed the 45-year-old woman outside and started insulting the Yankees decal on her car and chanting "Yankees suck!" Hernandez then got into her 1997 Dodge Intrepid and drove it into the crowd, killing 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin.
According to the Nashua Telegraph, jurors didn't believe Hernandez's claims that she was scared and trying to escape the mob, finding her guilty of guilty of reckless second-degree murder, two counts of second-degree assault, and one of three counts of reckless conduct. The victim's mother celebrated the guilty verdict, stating: “It’s a beautiful Christmas gift."
