Maury, TN: Maury Man Sentenced In Girlfriends Murder

Posted on February 20, 2010

A former male nurse at Maury Medical Center was sentenced yesterday in the killing of his girlfriend two years ago.

Mark Hinkle was charged with second-degree murder but convicted of manslaughter. He admitted to injecting his girlfriend, Samantha Rumbaugh, with a fatal dose of the anesthetic Propofol.

In a Lawrenceburg court room yesterday, Hinkle received 10 years probation, but must serve one year in confinement. He must report March 22 to begin serving that confinement.

According to a story on the WSMV-TV website, Hinkle was interviewed shortly after Rumbaugh's death. He told them he bought the drug that killed Rumbaugh at a yard sale in a tackle box.
