Police Identify Suspect In Fatal Hit-And-Run

Jacksonville police now have a suspect in the case of a 26-year-old woman run over in her apartment parking lot.

They say Jennifer Dee Hester died last month from blunt force trauma to the head.

She was a mother and recent nursing school graduate, who had just gotten a job at Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler.

Police are not releasing the name of the suspect at this time. They say they do have enough evidence to hand the case over to the Cherokee County grand jury. The suspect will likely face a charge of criminally negligent homicide.
