Natasha McBride to hire psychiatrist

A Quincy woman, indicted on 1st Degree Murder charges in connection with a multi-car accident in August that killed four people, will be able to hire an expert as part of her defense at trial.

Natasha McBride was in Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday for a motion hearing. Her attorney had asked Adams County to pay for a defense psychiatrist. That motion was granted. McBride is set to go on trial March 8th. She was indicted in late August by an Adams County Grand Jury. Besides the four Murder counts, McBride was also indicted on four counts each of Reckless Homicide, Leaving the Scene of an Injury Accident and Driving while license revoked. McBride has pleaded Not Guilty. She's accused of running a red light at Fourth and Broadway on August 14th, and running into a vehicle heading north on Fourth. That resulted in the deaths of four passengers, Jennifer Hendricks of Rushville, and her three grandsons, Dakota, Arsher and Ransom Corrick, all of Kirksville. Prosecutors have called McBride's actions before the crash intentional.

McBride's in the Adams County Jail on $5 million bond.
