Grand jury charges Yalanda Parrish in road rage case

A southern Indiana grand jury has indicted Yalanda Parrish on aggravated battery and criminal recklessness charges in a road rage case.

52-year-old Wesley Mosier was shot last month outside a Thornton's gas station in Jeffersonville.  The shooter, 39-year-old Yalanda Parrish, claims she shot Mosier in self-defense as he approached her car.

Witnesses say the two had been involved in a road rage argument before the shooting near the intersection of 10th Street and Allison Lane.

The grand jury said in its report that Parrish's "use of deadly force was unreasonable" in the situation.  Parrish was expected to surrender at the Clark County Jail Monday afternoon.

A judge has set her bond at $100,000.  Parrish will need 10%, or $10,000, to stay out of jail as her court case proceeds.  An initial court hearing has not been scheduled.

If convicted, Parrish faces as much as 28 years in prison.

The report said grand jurors studied 57 exhibits and heard evidence and testimony that stemmed from 15 subpoenas.  They heard testimony and deliberated over six days this month.
