A Decatur woman will be arraigned Aug. 24 after a Morgan County grand jury indicted her for manslaughter in her role in a fatal five-vehicle wreck on Point Mallard Parkway on June 25, 2019.

Court records showed Jonna Michelle McGuyre, 34, had drugs in her body at the time of the wreck. She is held in Morgan County Jail with no bail, jail records show.

Police said McGuyre was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe southbound on Point Mallard Parkway (Alabama 67) on the morning when she lost control and hit two pickups and an SUV “before colliding head-on with a Nissan Versa, which was driven by 30-year-old Ramsey Williams in the northbound lanes.”

Williams, of Somerville, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police records show McGuyre was arrested July 8 at her home on a charge of possession of a controlled substance for possessing methamphetamines at the time of the crash.

“Preliminary tests showed that McGuyre had amphetamines and benzodiazepines in her system at the time of the wreck and also had methamphetamines on her person,” said Decatur police officer Kristian Moody in a search warrant affidavit.

According to Morgan County Circuit Court records, McGuyre in 2017 pleaded guilty through drug court to unlawful possession of a controlled substance. She graduated from the drug court program two weeks before the fatal wreck, after her lawyer filed a motion noting that she "has tested negative on all her drug screens and has been clean for 18 months."
