Evan Smith

A Bucks County man was convicted on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, of killing 39-year-old Jamie Beighley inside a Falls Township motel last summer. 

Evan Marquis Smith, 38, of Morrisville, was found guilty by Common Pleas Judge Raymond F. McHugh of third-degree murder, aggravated assault, strangulation, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, fleeing and eluding and driving without headlights to avoid detection. 

Sentencing was deferred to a later date. 

During the three-day waiver trial, Bucks County Deputy District Attorney Mary Kate Kohler detailed a history of domestic violence committed by Smith against Beighley, ending with Smith strangling her inside the New Falls Motel on July 1, 2021. She died from her injuries three days later.
