Man charged in fatal police chase moved to state custody
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A southwestern Indiana man charged with causing a crash that killed two children during a police chase has been moved to state custody.
Court records show 26-year-old Frederick McFarland was transferred Thursday from an Evansville hospital to the custody of the state Department of Correction. He faces charges including resisting law enforcement causing death and is being held without the option of bond.
The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment from his lawyer.
Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s office spokesman Jess Power tells the Evansville Courier & Press McFarland will continue recuperating at a DOC facility from injuries he suffered in the Nov. 29 crash.
Authorities say McFarland fled police and crashed into a family’s car in Evansville, killing 7-month-old Prince Carter and 2-year-old Princess Carter, and seriously injuring their parents.
