October 15 will be the trial date for Alyssa Shepherd.  

She’s the woman accused of hitting and killing three Fulton County siblings as they were trying to board their Tippecanoe Valley school bus on October 30, 2018.  A fourth child survived being struck and is recovering from serious injuries.

The date was set at a pre-trial conference held Thursday afternoon.

Shepherd faces three counts of Reckless Homicide, one count of Criminal Recklessness, and one count of passing a school bus with the stop arm extended. The maximum sentence for all five charges is 21.5 years.

Another pre-conference meeting ahead of the trial is scheduled for July.
