A convicted criminal who mowed down and fatally struck his fiancee after she broke up with him is looking for love on a dating website six months after being released from prison.
Charles McKenzie Ross Evans, 47, was freed last August was sentenced to two years and eight months behind bars for the death of circus performer Alicia Little, 41, at their property in Kyneton in regional Victoria in December 2017.
The mother-of-four suffered catastrophic injuries from being crushed against a water tank by the Toyota HiLux her fiance was driving and died at the scene.
Evans was sentenced to four years jail with a non-parole period of two-and-a-half years after he pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving and failing to render assistance after a motor vehicle accident.
An initial murder charge was downgraded after striking a deal with prosecutors.
He relocated to Forbes in central-west NSW to live with his mother following his release from a Victorian prison six months ago and has since joined online dating in his quest for a fresh start.

Evans was unremorseful and attempted to shift the blame over Ms Little’s death when he was approached by Seven News at Melbourne Airport following his release on parole last year.
‘I’ve got nothing to say to you,’ he said.
‘Mental illness caused her death, not me.’
Ms Little’s family was left shattered by the news of Evans’ release.
‘I just need people to know him – to know his name and to remember him,’ her mother Lee told Seven News at the time.
Evans had been living with Ms Little in Kyneton, 87km north-west of Melbourne at the time.
He had allegedly been in an abusive relationship with her four years before she died on December 28, 2017, two weeks after he proposed to her.
But by Christmas the relationship was irreparable and she decided to end the relationship.

The Victorian Supreme Court heard in 2019 how Ms Little called police and begged for help moments before the car hit her.
In the 24 hours before her death, she texted her mother to say she was breaking up with Evans
In the next 24 hours there’s going to be a lot of drama,’ she wrote.
The next day she was hit by Evans’ car.
‘Two weeks prior to her death you had asked for her hand in marriage,’ Justice Lesley Taylor told Evans during sentencing.
‘Your four-year relationship had been marked by episodes of family violence.’
The court heard Ms Little had called police on various occasions about allegations of abuse.
But by Christmas 2017, the relationship was irreparable and she decided to end the relationship.
‘You said in the background, words to the effect of ”bring your brother, bring your uncles, I don’t f***ing care, I am an Evans, bring the lot of them”.’

She called police as Evans was ‘abusive and drunk’, the court was told.
Evans took Ms Little’s phone, got in his Toyota HiLux at the back of the property, and drove around a water tank and a fence between 12 km/h and 16 km/h.
He put on the brakes and skidded for 2.2 metres after hitting his partner.
‘The force of the impact caused Ms Little to rotate clockwise, 180 degrees, as the vehicle was skidding,’ Justice Taylor said.
The court heard after hitting Ms Little, Evans dashed to a friend’s house and complained she had bitten his nose.
He called her phone twice, told others he saw her ‘alive and well’ on the verandah when he left and that she had committed suicide.
‘Your actions caused the death of Ms Little. Ms Little was crushed between the water tank and your car tyres,’ Justice Taylor said at the sentencing.
‘You did nothing to assist Ms Little. You left the scene.’
