PHILADELPHIA (UKTN) – The woman accused of beating and killing two Pennsylvania State troopers and a pedestrian appeared in court earlier this year on Wednesday. Jayana Webb pleaded not guilty to charges brought against her.

Officials say Webb was under the influence of alcohol when she saw Troopers Martin Mack and Branden Sisca. beat and another man in a crash on Interstate 95 in March.

Eyewitness news cameras captured Webb in a plain pink blazer along with her family leaving the CJC Wednesday morning.

Her lawyer says Wednesday’s appearance was a hearing where the prosecutor set out all their discoveries and they set a date to meet again, where they will set a trial date.

Webb is accused of killing the two troopers and Reyes Rivera Oliveras on March 21. Officials say at the time of the crash, troopers were trying to help Oliveras, a civilian who was walking on the highway near the South Philadelphia sports complex where they were beaten.

She has been charged with three counts of third-degree murder, manslaughter, vehicular murder, DUI and other related felonies.

“I don’t think anything has changed in how she feels, it’s getting harder and harder to answer that question. She’s been accused of murdering three people. So it’s a tough time for her and her family. It’s definitely a difficult time for the families of those who died. It is a tragedy in every way,” said attorney Michael Walker.
