COLUMBUS, Ga. – The woman accused of stealing a car, driving drunk, and causing three crashes killing a 7-year-old boy made her first court appearance.

News three was in the court room today when 56-year-old Kathryn Adams faced a judge for the first time.

A judge said her bond on the homicide by vehicle and murder would be turned over to a Superior Court judge.

She went before a judge today in Recorder’s Court for her preliminary hearing.

Police say Adams was involved in three crashes around 8:30 Saturday evening, driving a stolen vehicle, injuring six people including herself, and killing 7 year old Ayden Kitchens.

She had no clothes on during all of this.

Adams faces at least 18 charges – including murder, first-degree homicide by vehicle, theft by taking motor vehicle, dui and leaving the scene of an accident.

56 year old Kathryn Adams remains in jail – with no bond.

This case has been bound over to Superior Court.

The 7 year old who died in that crash – Ayden Kitchens – was looking at Christmas lights with his siblings when the crash happened.

They were also injured in the crash.

The family has asked that anyone who wants to help them during this time should take donations to Woodland Baptist Church in Phenix City.
