CAIRO — Prosecutors are reassessing the indictment of a teenager charged with vehicular homicide for her involvement in a fatal January wreck.
A motion was tendered Wednesday to continue legal proceedings in the case of Anna McBride at a later date.
The case was originally set to begin pretrial motions Thursday morning.
"It looks like the indictment could be a little more specific, so we intend on presenting a new indictment in September in this matter," said District Attorney Joe Mulholland. "Obviously that obviates the need for a hearing."
Mulholland did not specify what aspects of the indictment were being reassessed, but McBride's legal counsel attempted to quash the indictment in June on the grounds that its listed speed limit of 55 mph in the area where the crash occurred is inaccurate.
According to the original indictment, McBride, 18, was driving 116.8 mph at the time she was involved in a collision which resulted in the death of Thomasville High School senior Levi Knop.
McBride has pleaded not guilty to counts of felony vehicular homicide, reckless driving and speeding.
