Police say Ms Mcglone was on a dangerous road and her boyfriend had pulled over to help her when she suddenly sped up and swerved into him.
“She was in a high-speed chase with her boyfriend when he pulled over and pulled out a handgun,” Detective Superintendent Dave Taylor said.
“Ms Mcglorion then drove at him and she was shouting at him to stop and that he had done something wrong.”
Ms McBogan was charged with the murder of her boyfriend and the other man, who is still missing.
Police have not released a motive in the case.
Ms McGovern said the court heard the former partner had told her he was ready to move on with his life.
“I said that if you ever come back, you will get your life back,” he said.
Police believe Ms McGovern is the mother of a child with the man she killed.
Detective Superintendent Taylor said they believed the former boyfriend had been involved in a relationship with Ms McGowan, who had a young child with him.
Police said Ms McBorgans history of violence was “significant” and she would be sentenced later.
