A California couple is behind bars after what police are calling a jealousy-fueled murder.

Surveillance video shows 18-year-old Christian Dominguez walking across the parking lot of the store. A white pick-up truck pulls in and drives out of view. Police said the driver tried to run over him and missed.

Another camera angle shows the truck chasing Dominguez seconds before hitting him and crashing into the building.

Police said John Nieto, the driver of the truck, thought his girlfriend, Elisabeth Mancilla, was cheating on him because Mancilla would occasionally drive Dominguez home from work.

On Wednesday night, police said, Nieto waited and watched his girlfriend drop off Dominguez, then he intentionally ran him over.

Nieto ran from the scene and was picked up by Mancilla. They were later arrested on Thursday.

Nieto was charged with murder and Mancilla was charged with accessory to murder.

A GoFundMe account was set up to the help the Dominguez family. To donate, click here.
