INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man accused of leading police on a chase then later causing a deadly crash was in court Friday morning.

The initial hearing was held for Matthew Edmonds. Police say they pursued Edmonds on Monday after he shoplifted from the Beech Grove Wal-Mart.

According to police, minutes after officers called off the chase in the Fountain Square area, Edmonds crashed into a truck, killing a 63-year-old grandmother and seriously injuring her daughter and grandson. They are both recovering from surgery.

Friday morning, a Marion County judge set bond for Edmonds at $250,000 and appointed a lawyer for him.
