Prescott Valley Police booked Kris Raymond McClain, 49 of Prescott into the Yavapai County Jail on felony charges including second degree murder in connection with a fatal collision Jan. 22 on Highway 89A near Robert Road.

Prescott Valley Police obtained several warrants for McClain's arrest on felony charges of second-degree murder, three counts of aggravated assault, one count of endangerment, two counts of aggravated DUI, one count of criminal damage and a probation violation.

Investigators continue to investigate the collision that took the life of Hayley Stevens, 19, of Dewey, and injured a 1-1/2-year-old child and Stevens' mother, Tammy Barron, Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Brandon Bonney said.

Both Barron and the child have been released from the hospital.

When investigators executed a search warrant on McClain's vehicle, they found about 60 grams of marijuana and a medical marijuana card, Bonney said.

"The suspect was not charged with any marijuana charges as I am told the amount he had was under the threshold of what is allowed with the card," Bonney said.

McClain was treated at a Phoenix hospital for injuries from the crash, and was released Jan. 26 from the hospital.

McClain was arrested shortly after being released, and booked into the Yavapai County Jail on the warrants.

The preliminary investigation shows that 2005 Jeep Liberty, driven by McClain, struck a white 2004 Dodge Neon driven by a Barron that had begun to accelerate after being stopped at the traffic light at State Highway 89A and Robert Road.

"Witnesses told officers that a 2005 Jeep Liberty struck the Neon at highway speeds with no braking," Bonney said. "The impact caused the Neon to spin several times and strike a Ford Focus, which was starting to accelerate from the intersection."

Stevens was treated at the scene, then transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center's East Campus, where she was later pronounced dead.

McClain was investigated for possible impairment after he told officers he'd used both marijuana and methadone for medical reasons in the past 24 hours, Bonney said.
