JEFFERSON COUNTY – A 43-year-old Evansville, Indiana woman was indicted Thursday in Jefferson County Court on three counts of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of a 46-year-old Dix man last month.
Retha McIntire was initially charged in September with Class 4 felony concealing or aiding a fugitive for the Sept. 29 shooting death of Cadias Jackson at his home in the Rolling Meadows Trailer Park near Dix.
The initial investigation revealed the suspects fled the scene in a white van with Indiana plates. Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies along with officers from the Mt. Vernon Police Department stopped the vehicle at Salem Road and North 11th Street in Mt. Vernon.
McIntire was arrested along with 23-year-old Treyaveon Massie, also of Evansville. Massie was quickly charged in Jefferson County Court with three counts of first-degree murder and his bond was set at $3 million.
McIntire filed a motion last week for a bond reduction in her initial case. But on Thursday prosecutors filed the new charges listed in the indictment. She’s scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on the three first-degree murder charges against her.
