An Augusta man is headed to trial in the May death of a retired Air Force general.

Stephen Landers, 48, was arrested shortly after the May 10 motorcycle crash that killed Linda McTague, a retired brigadier general in the U.S. Air Force and a founding board member of Talons Out Honor Flight.

On Monday, Oct. 16, 2017, a Calhoun County District Court judge ordered the case to trial.

McTague, 59, was riding a motorcycle on M-37 in Bedford Township that night when another vehicle pulled out in front of her. A friend riding with her on another motorcycle was able to avoid the crash.

Landers was driving the other vehicle, and was charged with operating while intoxicated causing death the next day. His was released on a $10,000 bond.
