QUINCY — A trial for a Quincy woman charged in an August 2020 crash that killed four people remains on track to be heard in February.
However, a hearing on Friday could change that.
A motion was filed by the state’s attorney’s office on Dec. 29 to extend the deadline for discovery in the case against Natasha McBride. After discussions Wednesday morning in Adams County Circuit Court with Public Defender Chris Pratt and First Assistant State’s Attorney Todd Eyler, Judge Bob Adrian set a motion hearing for 3 p.m. Friday.
Eyler also told Adrian that a count of aggravated driving under the influence recently had been added to McBride’s charges.
McBride, 37, faces four counts of murder, four counts of reckless homicide, four counts of driving on a revoked license and four courts of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident in connection to the Aug. 14, 2020, deaths of Jenniffer Hendricks, 54, of Rushville, and Dakota Corrick, 6, Archer Corrick, 4, and Ransom Corrick, 21 months. The Corrick boys were Hendricks’ grandchildren. They lived in Kirksville, Mo.
McBride allegedly ignored a traffic light at Fourth and Broadway while driving at a high rate of speed, causing the crash.
She continues to be held in the Adams County Jail on $5 million bond. A pre-trial hearing is still scheduled for Jan. 28, and a jury trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Feb. 2.
