Driver charged with DUI, kidnapping and murder

The driver in a June 4 accident that resulted in the death of Sebree teenager has been arrested and charged with kidnapping and murder.

Maxwell McMain, 19 of Morganfield, was taken into custody just after 5 p.m. this evening at his home, soon after his release from Deaconess Hospital in Evansville. McMain suffered injuries in the accident after being ejected from the SUV he was driving.

Webster County junior Kaci Wood was killed in the accident Sunday morning around 2 a.m.

Gone Too Soon

A number “8” with angel’s wings floated across many Facebook pages Sunday as Webster County mourned the loss of a life taken far too soon.

Now, many have changed their profile pictures as a tribute to 16-year-old Kaci Wood, who was tragically killed in an early morning accident Sunday in Union County.

Wood, a standout starter for the Webster County Lady Trojans’ softball team, had just finished her sophomore year.
