MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - There were new details Thursday morning about the investigation into a deadly crash involving a Rutherford County sheriff's deputy.

In newly released documents from Murfreesboro police, assistant crash team Commander Shawn Murphy admitted he not only knew about a liquor bottle allegedly dumped by Sgt. Ron Killings, but he photographed it and still didn't collect it as evidence.

In July, Killings hit and killed 11-year-old Lakeisha White as she crossed the street.  Witnesses said after the crash they saw Killings dispose of two liquor bottles. When they tried to tell officers about the bottles, the neighbors said they were ignored or even threatened with arrest. 

Blood tests were taken two and a half hours after the crash, and they came back negative for drugs and alcohol.
