Police in Rosenburg attempted to stop the 2012 red Ford mustang around 6:00 am for a traffic violation. Chidi Onunkwo, sped off and led police on a high-speed chase. The mustang had been reported stolen earlier Saturday morning after a carjacking in Houston.

After running several red lights and reaching speeds of 83mph, the mustang hit a Nissan driven at the intersection of Shiller and State Highway 6. Onunkwo fled the scene but was caught by police and taken to the hospital for his injuries.

Adorn Strambler, who was driving the Nissan, was killed. She was a 26-year employee of the City of Houston in the paralegal department.

Chidi Onunkwo was formally charged with murder on Sunday where his bond was set at $250,0000. His next court appearance is Tuesday, March 27th.

Onunkwo lists his address at the Waterstone Apartments in Cinco Ranch. Although he is of school age, we are unsure if he is a current Katy ISD student.
