Two men in Texas were arrested this week after they were allegedly driving boats while drunk on the Fourth of July when one of their wives fell overboard and died. Kyle MacMeekin, 29, and Shane Anniboli, 44, were taken into custody Thursday evening and charged with one count each of boating while intoxicated following the tragic death of 31-year-old Jerri MacMeekin, records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

According to a news release from the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, at about 8:59 p.m. on Thursday, the county dispatch center received a 911 call in reference to an adult female — later identified as Jerri MacMeekin — who had fallen off the side of a boat and into Lake Conroe near the Scott’s Ridge Boat Ramp, which is about 60 miles north of Houston, Texas. Initial reports to authorities indicated that several individuals had jumped into the water in an effort to locate the woman, but they had been unsuccessful.

Montgomery County Precinct 1 Marine Division, along with Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Wardens, the Montgomery County Hospital District, North Montgomery Fire Department, and the Conroe Fire Department responded to the area and arrived only minutes after receiving the call.

Authorities said they searched the water for “several long hours” before a team of rescue and recovery divers were able to locate Jerri MacMeekin’s body at about 11:30 p.m., the constable’s office said. She was pronounced dead on the scene.
