Evidentiary hearing set in reckless homicide case

An evidentiary hearing was scheduled for next Monday morning in Christian Circuit Court, to hear arguments on a motion to dismiss the indictment against Robert Jackson.

Jackson is charged with reckless homicide in the December 2019 fatal crash on Princeton Road that killed 32-year-old Misty Quarles and 11-year-old Alexia Trump, and defense attorney Olivia Adams intends to argue that the indictment against him should be dismissed based on evidence that was presented to a Christian County Grand Jury that resulted in that indictment.

Circuit Judge Andrew Self went ahead and set a hearing for Monday morning, going ahead and swearing in a witness that they will appear at that time to testify.

Jackson was traveling south on Princeton Road about three and a half miles north of the Eagle Way Bypass in Christian County on December 23, 2019 when he crossed the center line and collided head-on with a vehicle driven by Quarles. Quarles’ pickup then went over a bridge and onto a creek bed.

Quarles and Trump, died from their injuries. Two other passengers, 34-year-old Marcus Quarles and a juvenile, were seriously injured and flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Jackson was also injured and was taken to an area hospital.
