ATLANTA, Ga. – A woman is facing several charges after being accused of a deadly crime spree.

However, her explanation for the violent crimes has forced a judge to order her to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

In May, authorities say Kristie Nesby drove her car onto a sidewalk, running down a 71-year-old woman.

That woman was rushed to a nearby hospital but died from her injuries.

Police say the crash didn’t stop Nesby.

“After striking the pedestrian, the suspect carjacked another motorist’s vehicle and fled the scene southbound on Cobb Parkway,” Marietta police spokesman Officer Jared Rakestraw told AJC. “A short distance down the road near Canton Road and I-75, the suspect committed an additional carjacking and fled that scene as well.”

After wrecking that car, investigators say Nesby grabbed a gun and attempted to carjack another driver.

Officers caught up with her and arrested her on several charges.

According to KTRK, Nesby called 911 during the crime spree and said that she wanted to stop, but she couldn’t.

Nesby reportedly told police that she went to Chick-Fil-A and someone spiked her drink.

A judge has ordered a medical evaluation for Nesby.
