TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Jared Stinecipher pleaded guilty to on charges of criminally negligent homicide and failure to stop and render aid in the 7th District Court. Judge Kerry Russell said in court that Stinecipher did not have a plea agreement with prosecutors.

He will be sentenced on Dec. 7 in the 7th District Court on both charges.
Stinecipher, 26, the son of Smith County Sheriff's Deputy Lt. Mark Stinecipher, was driving a 2000 Dodge Ram, which allegedly collided with Arthur Dewayne Murphy, 50, who died from his injuries after the accident in December 2011, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety report. Stinecipher was indicted in July on charges of criminally negligent homicide and failure to stop and render aid.

Murphy was driving eastbound in a 1992 Honda Accord when Stincipher's vehicle allegedly hit him at the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 2767 and Farm-to-Market Road 757, the report stated.

Stinecipher allegedly left the scene and fled into the woods, touching off an hours-long manhunt, the DPS report stated. Murphy was transported to East Texas Medical Center, where he later died from injuries he suffered in the crash.

Stinecipher was arrested multiple times in 2011 on drug and other charges, according to the Smith County judicial website.

Smith County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Bobby Garmon said in December that Lt. Mark Stinecipher called him and said Jared Stinecipher had shown up at his house and was injured. "We also received information that his son might have been the one driving the vehicle in the crash," Garmon said.

The elder Stinecipher transported his son to the hospital and Jared Stinecipher was taken to the Henderson County Jail afterward. Garmon said it is standard procedure for any relative of a Smith County deputy to be moved to another jail facility to prevent accusations of special treatment.

Jared Stincecipher is being held in the Smith County Jail without bond. In July, Garmon was unable to say why Jared was being held in the Smith County jail rather than the Henderson County jail.
