HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A 59-year-old woman was run over by her son during a domestic-related incident in Henrico County, according to authorities.

Henrico Police said they found Robyn I. Keels of Chesterfield County with trauma in the yard of a home on the 7800 block of Point Hollow Drive Thursday morning. Keel’s son, 30-year-old Andre Vincent Keels was found naked in the driver’s seat of a Hyundai SUV.

Andre Vincent Keels was taken to the hospital and after being medically cleared was charged with second-degree murder. According to public records, he is being held at Henrico County Jail.

Authorities said their investigation reveals that R. Keels was struck by a vehicle.

Police said they were responding to a mental health call for a man who was outside a residence with no clothes on and yelling.

Keels was an organist who lead the music ministry at a baptist church in Richmond. In a statement to 8News, the church asked for privacy as they grieve.

Alvin Campbell, who is a close friend of Robyn Keels, said her death is a major loss to the church community. After service last night, he said the pastor announced her death and everyone gasped.

Family members told 8News that earlier this year she beat cancer, adding that she still had a life to live.
