IN woman's trial for 3 bus stop deaths goes to jury

An Indiana woman who killed three young siblings when she plowed her pickup truck into a group of children as they walked toward a school bus was convicted Friday of reckless homicide and criminal recklessness. A fourth child was also injured.

The Fulton County jury also found Alyssa Shepherd, 24, guilty of criminal recklessness in the October 30, 2018, crash that killed 6-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle, and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl.

CNN has reached out to Shepherd's attorney for comment. Shepherd will be sentenced December 18 and could face more than 20 years in prison. She described emotions including disbelief and hysteria upon realizing she had hit the children.

He said he and his family respects everyone's opinion and appreciate the support that has come out, however says wishing harm or making threats, including those against Alyssa Shepherd or any of her family, are unwelcome and doesn't help the situation. Prosecutors say Shepherd drove past a school bus stop arm near Rochester, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.

The crash caught national attention and prompted legislation to be passed in IN in April. Marrs also mentioned the testimony of the driver behind Shepherd who said she could tell a school bus with its warning lights on and stop arm extended was up ahead.
