SABINE COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - The mother of convicted murderer Matthew Edgar turned herself in to Sabine County authorities Monday.

Cindy Hogan-Edgar, of Hemphill, turned herself in to the Sabine County Jail on Monday according to jail staff. Hogan-Edgar is the mother of Matthew Hoy Edgar, 27, of Hemphill, a man convicted of murder in 2022 after an investigation into the death of his ex-girlfriend in Oct. 2020.

Matthew Edgar had gone missing from his trial in January of 2022, and was captured in late December of 2022. On Monday, Cindy Hogan-Edgar was arrested after turning herself in on a charge of hindering apprehension or prosecution of a known felon, a Sabine County Jail employee said. The indictment was handed down by a Grand Jury on Oct. 25, stating that Cindy Hogan-Edgar committed her alleged crime on Dec. 28, 2022.

According to the jail employee, Cindy Hogan-Edgar was wanted on an outstanding warrant for the charge. She was released Monday on a $20,000 bond.

The U.S. Marshal’s Service caught Edgar on December 31, 2022; at the time he was smoking on the back porch of a residence near his mother’s Hemphill home.

Edgar was sentenced to 99 years incarceration with TDCJ for the murder of 19 year old Livye Lewis.
