JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A hearing in the case against Karen Irby has been scheduled in Hinds County Court Friday morning. This comes just days before her trial which is set to begin next Monday.

Irby is charged with depraved heart murder, accused of driving drunk at excessive speeds when she hit a truck in February of last year.

Two doctors were killed and her husband, Stuart, was seriously injured.

Those charges could carry a life sentence. 

Sources tell WLBT prosecutors are expected to offer a plea deal, possibly involving lesser charges.

The hearing will be shown live on WLBT and Friday morning beginning at 10 o'clock.
