A Circuit Court jury found a Neshoba County man not guilty of DUI/manslaughter last week in connection with a one-vehicle accident on Mississippi 491 on Sept. 7, 2012, which claimed the life of a family member.

The jury deliberated for over an hour before finding Andrew Amos, 25, of 146 Bogue Chitto Lane, not guilty of DUI/manslaughter in the death of his uncle, Stephen Amos Sr., 54.

Andrew Amos was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado when it left the roadway and hit a tree, the authorities charged. Stephen Amos was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both men were ejected from the truck.

Andrew Amos was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Jackson where he was treated and released. He was later charged with DUI/manslaughter.

Amos testified on his own behalf during his trial.

In an unrelated case in Circuit Court, a Philadelphia woman received a 10-year sentence after pleading guilty to strong arm robbery.

Kimberly Edwards, 38, of Myrtle Street, Apt. 7, pleaded guilty to a July 2013 strong arm robbery at a residence in the 400 block of Crockett.

Bill Cox, police chief at the time, said the homeowner opened his door about 5 p.m. after hearing a knock and Edwards asked to come inside.

"When he wouldn't let her in because he didn't know her, she pushed her way in," Cox said.

Edwards was indicted for taking about $250 from the owner's wallet.

She just grabbed the wallet and left, Cox said.

Edwards was stopped in her vehicle a few hours later on Myrtle Street.

"My officers saw her and performed a traffic stop," Cox said. "She was then arrested."

All but $30 was retrieved from Edwards, he said.
