ROCHESTER, Ind. -- Alyssa Shepherd, 24, accused of killing three children and seriously wounding one, is facing homicide charges.

On Tuesday, Oct. 30, Alyssa Shepherd bonded out of police custody at the Fulton County Jail.

Shepherd is looking at three felony counts of reckless homicide and one count of driving around a school bus that had its lights on and arm extended, Indiana State Police say.

ISP say Shepherd didn't come to a stop on S.R. 25 when the bus was stopped, killing three children and leaving another in critical condition.

Shepherd had worked as the Children's Director at the Faith Outreach Center in Rochester, Indiana.

Shepherd was served with an arrest warrant at approximately 4:09 p.m. Tuesday afternoon on Oct. 30, 2018.

Shepherd was held at the Fulton County Jail on a surety bond of $15,000. She later bonded out, according to authorities.

If found guilty, Shepherd could face up to six years in prison per felony count.

Correction: We incorrectly stated Shepherd received a speeding ticket for driving 85 in a 70 mph zone several years ago. The incorrect information has been removed from the story.
