Hundreds attended vigil for boy dropped from Oregon bridge

NEWPORT, Ore. — The woman accused of dropping her 6-year-old autistic son off the Yaquina Bay Bridge is scheduled to appear in Lincoln County Circuit Court Wednesday in Newport to face charges of aggravated murder, murder and manslaughter.

On Saturday night, several hundred people held a candlelight vigil under the bridge for London McCabe, whose body was found in the water last Monday.

Jillian McCabe is held without bail. An uncle said she was under intense emotional distress from years of caring for the child and more recently for her disabled husband.
