The driver in a crash that left a McCormick Junior High School student dead has pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide.

Kelly Lynn Gaskins' attorney entered the plea on her behalf Tuesday morning in Laramie County Circuit Court.

Cheyenne police say 13-year-old Makaili "Mak" Evans was on his way to school around 7 a.m. on Nov. 5, 2021, when Gaskins, who was driving a Ford Escape eastbound on Western Hills Boulevard, hit him in the crosswalk in front of McCormick.

A signature bond of $10,000 and bond conditions were set, and a scheduling conference was set for June 6 at 4 p.m.

If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, Gaskins could face up to a year in jail and/or a $2,000 fine.
