Vermont State Police have arrested Anthony Reynolds, 48, of Pittsford, in connection with the death of Melanie Rooney.

Reynolds faces charges including involuntary manslaughter, first-degree aggravated domestic assault and grossly negligent operation of a vehicle.

Investigators say Reynolds and Rooney were in a relationship and got into an argument in Rutland City the night before her death. Police say hours later, Reynolds hit Rooney with his vehicle at the end of her driveway at 13 Market Street in Proctor, killing her.

Reynolds will be held without bail until his arraignment on Monday in Rutland.
