Man deliberately runs over roommate twice — Killing him

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Police have arrested a man who they say purposely ran over his roommate twice, killing him.

40-year-old Shamil Marcus Bikul was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail late Monday for investigation of aggravated murder. 

Bikul was driving a Nissan sedan when he hit Lewis Ricky Yates Jr., 50, who was riding a bicycle near 3650 South and 2700 West, just before 7pm Sunday, police said.

Bikul kept driving, then made a U-turn at a high rate of speed and deliberately struck Ricky again, police said.

Police say Yates and Bikul were roommates who lived in the area.
