Lynn teacher accused of hitting woman with car held without bail

Posted: Updated:

SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. ( — A Lynn teacher was held without bail Wednesday amid allegations that she struck her estranged husband's female friend with her car.

Kimberly Ann English, 49, of Swampscott, was arraigned on charges that include aggravated assault and battery with intent to commit murder and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.

Police say English struck the victim at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday as she stood outside English's estranged husband's Swampscott home. The victim, Anna Champagne, was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.

Investigators allege English made statements to her 8-year-old child saying she hoped "Anna dies."

A spokesman for Lynn public schools tells The Daily Item that English teaches at Ingalls Elementary School and officials are in the process of deciding what action to take.

English will be back in court Sept. 17 for a dangerousness hearing.
