A 24-year-old woman accused of a fatal hit-and-run last month in Kenmore pleaded not guilty today to felony hit and run.
Sydney Katelane Jones, of Kenmore, allegedly struck Joseph D. Humphreys, 31, of Kenmore around 1:30 a.m. Oct. 21 while he was walking in the 18400 block of 62nd Avenue Northeast.
Authorities believe that after the crash Jones took her dog for a walk. She came upon the body and dialed 911, the King County Sheriff’s Office said.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West said Jones turned herself in at the Kenmore City Hall later that afternoon. She directed deputies to her Ford F150 pickup, which appeared to have been involved in a crash, West said.
Jones is out of jail after posting $25,000 bond. A case-setting hearing is scheduled for Dec. 5.
