Woman dies, man jailed in road death

A Jones County woman is dead after being run over by an automobile in Covington County.

Authorities say Kelly Martin of Jones County was allegedly tossed from a vehicle Tuesday night onto Highway 84 just west of the Jones County line. She was run over by another car, which authorities say didn't stop. 

Alex Denham was the driver of the vehicle that Martin was riding in, authorities say. He's being held in the Jones County jail for possible kidnapping charges while the investigation continues. 

Authorities say Denham allegedly kidnapped the victim at gunpoint.
