WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – A man is behind bars and facing murder charges after police say he intentionally hit and killed a man with his car.
 
According to West Valley Police, 40-year-old Aaron Hosman was taken into custody without incident Saturday night after an officer spotted him at 7800 South 2700 West. 

 
According to a press release, “Hosman was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on charges of murder and obstruction of justice.”
 
On Wednesday, June 8th, witnesses tell ABC4 Utah that 47-year-old Jeremy Hardman was trying to stop Hosman from hurting a Chihuahua. They say after the two got into some sort of argument or verbal altercation, Hosman got into his car, made a U-turn and hit Hardman while he was in the crosswalk at 3600 West 4100 South.
 
Investigators believe that act was intentional and are treating this case as a homicide. 
 
During a conversation over the phone, Hardman’s mom Judy Crocker said, “He was always a champion for the underdog, but when it came to real dogs, he had a soft spot in his heart.”
