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.

CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — State police say that two men killed in a hit-and-run in Southern Oregon were fighting in the road when they were struck by a pickup.
Authorities identified the victims Wednesday as 21-year-old Jarred Quinn Houston and 41-year-old Robert Calvin, both of Cave Junction.
Troopers say Calvin was walking with a woman along U.S. Highway 199 south of Cave Junction in the dark at around midnight Tuesday, when Houston pulled over, possibly due to a mechanical problem. The two men started arguing and were fighting in the southbound lane when they were hit by a compact pickup that never stopped.
The vehicle was described as a light-colored — possibly beige or tan - 1980s Toyota pickup with a matching canopy and damage to the front end.

The driver believed to be responsible for a fatal hit-and-run in Kenmore has turned herself in to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspect, a 24-year-old woman, surrendered this afternoon at Kenmore City Hall, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West. In addition, the pickup believed to be involved in the accident was towed from the 18700 block of Kenlake Place, West said.
The body of the victim, a 31-year-old Kenmore man, was found along the 18400 block of 62nd Avenue Northeast about 1:30 a.m. Monday by a woman walking her dog.
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victim as Joseph D. Humphreys.
Mark Humphreys, the victim’s father, told Times news partner KING-TV he wasn’t looking for justice.
“I’m only looking for answers and an apology,” he said. “I’m not after nobody. I just wanna know. I loved him.”
Injuries sustained by Humphreys were consistent with being hit by a vehicle, and detectives said debris left at the scene included part of a headlight that likely came from a 2003-2004 Ford F150 pickup.
Anyone with information on the accident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 206-296-3311. Callers can also contact Crime Stoppers and remain anonymous and receive a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

A 28-year-old Redmond man pleaded guilty on Monday to vehicular homicide and reckless endangerment for the December 2011 death of a bicyclist in Kirkland, according to King County prosecutors.
Nathan J. Godwin faces a sentence of 15 to 20 months in prison, plus 18 months of community supervision followed by two years of probation, when he is sentenced on Sept. 6, said Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg.
On Dec. 8, 2011, Bradley Nakatani, of Kirkland, was cycling home from work in Redmond at around 3 a.m. when he was struck by an SUV driven by Godwin, who was drunk, according to prosecutors. Speed was also a factor in the crash.
Kirkland police said at the time that Nakatani — a software engineer at Alstom, a Redmond technology company – was dressed head-to-toe in reflective gear and had lights on his bicycle and on his helmet. The Medical Examiner’s Office said Natakani suffered a skull fracture and multiple other injuries.
Godwin’s vehicle struck the cyclist as he was turning left from Northeast 124th Street onto Slater Avenue Northeast.
Nakatani, 36, graduated from Newport High School in Bellevue in 1994, went on to attend the California Institute of Technology, and received a master’s degree from Stanford University, a friend told The Seattle Times after Nakatani’s death. He was just around the corner from his apartment when he was killed.
