BY foxsports • December 12, 2009

A murder trial has begun for a New Hampshire woman accused of killing a man with her car after a group of people allegedly taunted her for having a New York Yankees decal on the vehicle. Ivonne Hernandez's trial started Monday in Nashua. Jurors spent the morning viewing the crime scene. Opening statements began in the afternoon. The May 2008 crash killed 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin. Hernandez claimed that a group of people had been taunting her because of the Yankees decal. Police said the dispute had started as an exchange about the Yankees and Red Sox. Hernandez has said she drove toward the group with her car to scare them. She is charged with second-degree murder.
