McBride denied temporary release to attend mother’s funeral


QUINCY (WGEM) -- A Quincy woman facing four counts of first-degree murder after a fatal car crash in August was denied a temporary release to attend her mother's funeral, according to Assistant States Attorney Josh Jones.

Jones said Natasha McBride's attorney Todd Nelson had filed a motion for a temporary release on Thursday.

Court records show after hearing arguments, Assistant Judge Debra L. Wellborn denied that motion on Friday.

McBride's mother, Pamela Lewis, 52, of LaGrange, Missouri, died in her home on Tuesday. Funeral services will be held on Saturday.

Prosecutors said McBride's "intentional acts" resulted in a fatal multi-vehicle traffic crash that killed four people and injured another.

Police said on Friday, August 14, McBride was driving at a very high rate of speed, failed to stop at the stoplight at 4th and Broadway, and struck a vehicle driven Stephen Hendricks, 61, of Rushville, Illinois.

Hendricks was transported to Blessing Hospital with moderate injuries.

Police said Hendricks' wife, Jennifer, 54, of Rushville, and their grandson four-year-old Archer Corrick of Kirksville, Missouri, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Their other grandchildren, six-year-old Dakota Corrick of Kirksville was pronounced dead at Blessing Hospital and 21-month-old Ransom Corrick of Kirksville was pronounced dead at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.

Police said McBride ran on to the Bayview Bridge after the crash, but she was eventually caught by officers.

McBride was transported to Blessing Hospital to recover from her injuries and later booked into the Adams County Jail.
