A California woman yesterday pleaded not guilty to killing a Navy officer in a fit of road rage.

Authorities say 26-year-old Darla Jackson intentionally hit 39-year-old Navy Chief Petty Officer Zacharia Buob’s motorcycle, and then ran him over with her car on May 28. Police say the two had an altercation on Interstate 5 in Chula Vista during rush hour traffic.

Jackson pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in court yesterday. Bail was set at $1 million.

Two of Jackson’s ex-boyfriends have previously filed restraining orders against her. One of those ex-boyfriends claims that Jackson threatened to run him over with her car.

If convicted, Jackson faces 15 years to life in prison.

Fox 5 in San Diego reported:

Prior to Tuesday’s hearing, about 200 motorcyclists rode in a large group from Denny’s parking lot in National City to the Chula Vista courthouse in support of Buob’s family.

“Regardless of why the altercation started,” said Brittnay Willow, ” a car should never be used [as] a murder weapon.”

She along with friends, family, fellow shipmates and total strangers made the short ride which turned into a rally outside of court.
