PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County Sheriff’s Office arrested a woman Saturday, in connection with a homicide. Investigators say 53-year-old Tina Marie Hill was in a relationship with 51-year-old Dennis Stewart, who was found dead on Thanksgiving in the rural Juniper Acres Subdivision.
According to the Sheriff's Office, the two lived together in a small cabin on Myrtlewood Lane at the time of the altercation that led to Stewart’s death. Hill faces several charges, including Murder in the First Degree, Manslaughter and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
In June 2016, Hill was arrested for Attempted Murder and Animal Abuse after an argument with Stewart. In that domestic dispute, Hill was accused of firing a handgun several times. One round struck a dog.
