Steelville, MO (KSDK) - A woman already facing multiple charges connected to the death of a friend more than two years ago, has withdrawn her motions for a change of venue and a new judge in a drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident case which is connected to the involuntary manslaughter charge.
Andrea Macier, 25 of Cuba was originally charged in the June 2010 death of 26 year old Christopher Bell after she gave police conflicting accounts of how Bell died on the side of Cotton Dodd Road in Crawford County.
That case was moved to Wayne County where Macier is awaiting trial.
In August, Macier was then charged with the DWI and leaving the scene crimes which prosecutors say are related to the death of Bell.
Originally, Macier told investigators Bell was driving the car they were in, when he stopped to relieve himself on the side of the road, and the car rolled over the victim.
Witnesses told police both Bell and Macier were intoxicated at the time, and Macier was the person driving the car.
After being pressed by authorities, Macier stopped cooperating with detectives and requested an attorney.
Macier is now scheduled to appear in court November 26 on the Drunk driving and accident charge. The involuntary manslaughter case has not been set for trial at this time, and has shown no activity in court records since June.
