DOVER, N.H. — A New Hampshire grand jury has indicted a Barrington man on four counts of negligent homicide in a crash last year that killed a Maine couple.

The indictments charge 49-year-old John Shaw with excessive speed and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in the Aug. 31, 2013, crash in Barrington that killed Joel and Maxine McLain, both 77, of Biddeford, Maine.

Joel McLain was pastor of Victory Chapel in Biddeford for more than 30 years. The couple had been married one year.

Police say Shaw’s truck crossed the center line of Route 202 and hit the McLains’ car.

The indictments were made Tuesday.

Shaw is being held on $25,000 bail. His arraignment date is May 1.

Shaw’s lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
