PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) -- Deputies are investigating a fight they
believe led to the death of a 71-year-old southwest Florida woman.

Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies found Phyllis Gipe lying in
the road around 7:30 p.m. Friday. She later died at the hospital.

Authorities said several people were fighting before Gipe was
hit and believe the two are related.

Thirty-five year-old Roy Lee Poore was arrested for aggravated
assault on Guy Gipe. It's unclear what the two were fighting about.

The investigation continues.
