FAYETTEVILLE, TN (WAFF) - An arraignment hearing for a woman charged with stealing a police cruiser and causing a crash that killed a man in Fayetteville, TN is set for Tuesday.

Last month, a grand jury indicted Misty Shelton on 13 different charges, including vehicular homicide. 

In the Tuesday hearing, a judge will explain the charges against Shelton. The hearing will likely be very brief. 

Shelton is accused of stealing a Fayetteville, TN police cruiser after officers arrested her for shoplifting in August 2013. She lead them on a five minute chase before crashing into an SUV, killing Henry Holt and injuring four other people. 

At a hearing in May, testimony revealed that her blood alcohol content was .11 at the time of the crash. 

In the June grand jury, Shelton was indicted and charged with theft over $1,000, open container, public intoxication, theft over $1,000, DUI, evading by motor vehicle, reckless endangerment, vandalism over $10,000, vehicular assault and vehicular homicide. 

She has been in police custody since the crash.
