MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — A Clay County grand jury has indicted a man accused of murdering five people, including an unborn child, after authorities say he caused a car crash while high on drugs in eastern Kentucky.

WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/1RMF8Xo ) reports that 40-year-old Jason Gibson of Big Creek was indicted Thursday on four counts of murder, one count of fetal homicide and one count of operating a motor vehicle under the influence, among other charges. Authorities also say Gibson was in possession of methamphetamine.

Police say Gibson was high Dec. 18 when he hit another car along the Hal Rogers Parkway. Judy Pennington-Adams, her pregnant daughter Tiffany Williams, Tiffany’s unborn child and infant son Kyson as well as family friend Charlene Lewis were all killed.

Gibson pleaded not guilty to the charges in December.
