TYLER (KYTX) - Judge Kerry Russell sentenced Jared Stinecipher to 10 years in prison Tuesday morning in the 7th District Court in Smith County.

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

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 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.
