A Conway man pleaded guilty in the 2017 death of a 51-year-old Conway woman on Wednesday, according to a news release from Fifteenth Circuit Solicitor Jimmy Richardson.

Jason K. Sherman, 35, of Conway pleaded guilty to hit-and-run with death before the Honorable Circuit Court Judge Larry B. Hyman on June 13 and was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison, said Lauree Richardson, the senior assistant solicitor who prosecuted the case for the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office.

Sherman is accused of hitting and killing Henrietta McCray, 51, of Conway, on Feb. 11, 2017, Richardson said. Sherman fled the scene and was arrested Feb. 15, 2017, by Conway Police and charged in the incident.

“The Solicitor’s Office thanks the officers for their hard work in this case to bring this defendant to justice,” Richardson said in the release. “We hope this conclusion brings some closure to the victim’s family.”
