TRIAL DATE SET FOR MURDER SUSPECT IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY

A Cumberland County Criminal Court judge set a trial date today for a man charged with first-degree murder.

The first-degree murder charge against 45-year-old Jude Rod Pennington is based on a November 2019 incident where 39-year-old Travis Allon Sinard of Crossville was fatally shot allegedly by Pennington after a domestic altercation on Colby Circle in the Rinnie area.

First responders found Pennington wounded in a pickup truck close to the area of Highway 127 North. He sustained a gunshot wound to the right shoulder and leg. Sinard was located in the front yard of the home on Colby Circle. He reportedly suffered from a wound to the head and hand. Both were flown to an area hospital for treatment. Sinard passed away and Pennington recovered.

In court today (April 22, 2024), the judge scheduled motions to be heard in court on September 3, 2024.

The trial of Pennington is set to start on September 11, 2024.
