GAUTIER, MS (WLOX) -

The looks on the faces of Justin Gary Stork's family say everything. Shock mixed with tears. Gautier police say the young man with a brand new baby was run over by 25-year-old Krystal Kersey, his wife of two months.

They say she used her car to run Stork down, pinning him to a tree. He died moments later. She then left the scene, traveling through the apartment courtyard.

Stork's mother, Donna, remembers her son. 

"He was a very loving person. I don't think that he met anybody that didn't like him. He would give you the shirt off his back," Freeman recalled. 

Kersey turned herself in several hours after the incident, and was charged with killing her husband, according to Captain Jerry Cooksey with the Gautier Police Department.

"We believe there was intent, due to the way the accident happened. The evidence at the scene, witness statements, so we believe we can show intent that she meant to actually strike the man with the car," Cooksey explained.  

Obviously, the investigation into this case is in the preliminary stages. Police are trying to figure out exactly what happened and why.

As for a motive Gautier Detective Jonathan Whitfield offered a possible explanation. 

"It was a possible domestic issue over what might be some sort of disagreement they had over one of their children," Whitfield said. 

Family members felt bad things were about to happen, because Justin Stork had a premonition the morning of his death, according to Freeman. 

"He was just a nervous wreck, just all over the place and I said, Justin, what is it and he said Momma, I just feel like she's going to kill me. He said she keeps telling men that she's going to kill me," Freeman said.

Freeman also said the rest of the family is also reeling from his tragic and sudden death.  

"My daughter didn't sleep all night. I didn't sleep all night. My fiance didn't sleep all night. You know, I've been holding his work badge because he loved his job," Freeman said.

A love of job and family gone too soon.

Kersey is scheduled to have an initial appearance and bond hearing Monday afternoon at 1pm in Gautier municipal court.

    Neshoba's giant house party in high gear

    Mississippi’s giant house party might not have the fanfare of 2016. But, it’s still a must visit event for families across the magnolia state. This year is not a political year in Mississippi. So, the political stumping is not nearly as significant as it can be. Yet, this Wednesday and Thursday, people will gather under the pavilion at Founders Square and listen to a series of speeches from Mississippi’s elected leaders.
