Family upset over jail release

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Relatives of a woman killed in a wreck three years ago are upset they weren't told in advance about a bond hearing for the woman accused in that crash.

Alice Marie Wilson of Utica was released in December on house arrest and $50,000 bond, after a psychiatrist said her schizophrenia was in remission. She's accused of killing 69-year-old Alice Faye Clausell while fleeing from police three years ago.

Clausell's daughter, Kimberly Arnold, tells The Clarion-Ledger the family should have had a chance to oppose bond.

Special prosecutor Ashley Ogden says she had only one familiy member's name and contact information in the file. She says she will ask that person to give her a list of other families want advance notice of any court dates or motions.
