BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck woman accused of crashing her vehicle into a house while chasing her husband now faces a felony insurance fraud count, along with her husband.

Authorities allege that Ella Bowen-Davis and her husband, Gary Bowen, gave multiple conflicting statements to an insurance company in connection with the March crash in attempting to get more than $14,000 of insurance money.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Bowen-Davis has posed $5,000 bond, while Bowen remains jailed.

Bowen-Davis has pleaded not guilty to felony reckless endangerment in the case. She's accused of chasing her husband through central Bismarck on March 29 with three children in the back seat of her Suburban and ramming his vehicle, sending her own into a house. No one was hurt.
