My condolences go out to all of Charlene's family and friends.

I did not know Charlene long, but what I do know is she always met me with a smile and made me laugh.

I know that her life now with our Heavenly Father will be her ample reward for a job well done.

Phelps To Serve Life,
By Larry Briscoe, Editor
Jerry Lynn Phelps was sentenced to life in prison without parole this week for the Oct. 9, 2008, capital murder of Charlene Hoover-Jones, according to Hunt County District Attorney Noble D. Walker Jr.
Jerry Lynn Phelps was sentenced to life in prison without parole this week for the Oct. 9, 2008, capital murder of Charlene Hoover-Jones, according to Hunt County District Attorney Noble D. Walker Jr.
Jones worked at a game room at 2660 State Highway 276, west of West Tawakoni when she was shot twice.
The state had previously announced that it would seek the death penalty in the case, and jury selection was scheduled to begin on May 17. The 58-year-old defendant had a Wills Point address in south Hunt County.
Walker said, "The state had not made a plea offer in this case and was prepared to proceed with trial and seek the death penalty. However in recent weeks, counsel for defendant indicated that he was willing to plead guilty to life without parole and his offer was communicated to Ms. Hoover-Jones’ family."
Walker said a majority of the family agreed with the waiver of the death penalty in exchange for the defendant’s plea of guilty to life without parole.
"As part of the plea, the defendant was required to waive his right to appeal," the district attorney said. "As such, the family, as well as the state, will have the finality of the conviction and punishment as opposed to the uncertainty of the lengthy appeals process that would have resulted had the defendant been found guilty and sentenced to death. We are extremely pleased that this case has been resolved with this defendant never to be released from the penitentiary during his natural life."
Walker commended Ms. Hoover-Jones’ family members for their active involvement in the prosecution of the case as well as the Hunt County Sheriff’s Department and Assistant District Attorney Keli Aiken for their work in solving and preparing the case for presentation to a Hunt County Jury.
