NewsOK: Mother and boyfriend arrested after death of 1-year-old

http://newsok.com/article/3107298/1187715611
By Augie Frost
Staff Writer
Police arrested a mother and her boyfriend on complaints of allegedly
abusing and murdering the woman's 1-year-old girl, a police spokesman said
today.


Olivia Scroggins died at St. Anthony Hospital about noon Monday after her
mother, Wendy Scroggins, 22, and her boyfriend, Kerry Smith, 21, brought
Olivia in for medical treatment, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said in a
written news release.

Both Scroggins and Smith were later arrested on first-degree murder and
child abuse complaints. They are currently in the Oklahoma County jail and
being held without bond.

Olivia had "visible trauma to her body" when she was brought to the
hospital, which raised suspicions as to how the child died, Knight said.

A second child, a 9-month-old, was also brought to the hospital by
Scroggins and Smith.

"While speaking to family members of the victim, the officer noticed a
9-month-old child in their care that also showed signs of trauma and
abuse," Knight said.

Police can not release the identity of the 9-month-old or whether the child
belongs to Scroggins or Smith, but he did say the child was treated at the
hospital for its injuries and is expected to survive.

Police interviewed both Scroggins and Smith for several hours Monday night.

Scroggins and Smith live together in an apartment, located at 3317½ N
McKinley, Knight said.

Title: A solider's gratitude
Date: July 4, 2004
Page: 0

MARION -- They were gifts from the heart. And the thanks and appreciation were from the heart.For better than a year, members of the Ohio Heartland Community Action meal site had been sending letters and packages to Spc. Blane Mayberry, who was serving the Middle East.


Mayberry, grandson of Clara Scroggins, deployed to Kuwait in August 2002 as part of Operation Desert Spring prior to receiving orders to Iraq and serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom.


"My grandmother was over here drumming up support not only for me, but others who didn't have family," he said. "They just sent us a large variety of items including sometimes a current magazine or newspaper, something to give us a sense of what was going on at home."


Mayberry, who recently returned to the states, traveled to Marion on June 23 to personally thank those at the meal site for their kindness and much appreciated gifts. He also presented them with a plaque of appreciation from Bravo Battery.


"I know many of you are on limited incomes," Mayberry said, as he began his presentation. "But you gave generously from the heart. You will never know how much it meant to me and others in my unit. Every bit of it was put to use. It really helped bring up the morale. It always helps to get something from home, especially things we couldn't get over there."


Seniors at the site had gathered razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, writing paper, books, magazines, deodorants, bug spray, suntan lotions and more to send to the troops in Iraq through Mayberry.


Mayberry presented Hazel Blankenship, executive director of the Community Action Center, with the certificate of appreciation plaque which reads:


"This certificate of appreciation is presented to Community Action Meal Site in recognition of your outstanding support of the soldiers of Bravo Battery, 1st Battalion, 9th Field Artillery during Operation Desert Spring and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Your commitment and dedication to the men and women who serve your country reflects great credit upon your organization and the United States of America."


Blankenship, with tears in her eyes, accepted the plaque and a hug from Blankenship.


"As you know, we're a great group to be patriotic," Blankenship said. "We don't always understand why you're there, but want you to know we're proud of you and will continue to pray for all of you. We have prayed for you every day."


Lizzie Whitaker and Capitola Henson were among those present for the lunch and presentation. Both were pleased to know the group h ad made a difference to the troops.


"Our eyes were opened as to the needs of our service people," Whitaker said. "I was real proud of him. His grandmother gave me his picture and I put it up on the prayer board at church. We have prayer for them (service personnel on active duty, specifically in Iraq) every service."


I thought his presentation was real nice," Henson said, adding "I didn't know the group was sending items to Blane. I would like to have been a part of it and will be if they send more."


Also present to support his nephew, was Brian Napper, Elgin Junior High principal, who also is a strong advocate of support to the troops.


"I was happy that the local people supported him and his unit," Napper said. "I was poud of him and proud of this community. I'm proud Blane is serving his country and I was especially proud that he pointed out to those people that he realized they made sacrifices as well to send the gifts."


Napper said Mayberry was in the invasion and he was watching it as everyone else was, but knowing Blane was there caused even more worry.


"People are sacrificing on a daily basis," Napper said. "I don't think a lot of us realize just how much. These are dangerous times for them. I pray for him and all of them every day. It's the price we have to pay for freedom. I'm proud of every one of them that serve."


Mayberry, son of Rick Mayberry, Marion, and Julia and Sherman Owings of Urbana, and grandson of Alfred and Charlotte Mayberry and Scroggins, is currently home on leave from Fort Stewart, Ga. and will report back there with the possibility of returning to Iraq in November.


He said he experienced many times of apprehension and believed most of his peers would admit to the same. Does he want to go back to the same violence and uncertainty?


"There isn't anyone I've served with who have said 'yes, they want to go back,'" he said. "They want to serve their country and do the best they can do. That's what's in our hearts and the pride we have in serving."


Mayberry said he would be remiss if he did not thank the entire community for their letters, packages, cards and prayers -- not specifically addressed to him but to all service personnel serving in harms way.


"I just want to thank everyone for their support and prayer while I was over there," he told the Star. "Please continue to remember those still there and thanks from the bottom of my heart."

Title: A new life, new energy
Author: BRENDA J. DONEGAN
Date: November 20, 2005
Page: B0

The Marion StarNEW BLOOMINGTON -- Doing for others as she would like others to do to her is the philosophy of life for Clara Scroggins.


Always willing to help neighbors and others she came in contact with, Scroggins said after going through a Pathfinders program while helping distribute commodities in Cave City, Ky., she learned to volunteer in a different way.


"Pathfinders encompasses all faiths," she said. "That's when I began my strong volunteering."


Her first efforts were at the Community Action Center helping wherever needed. She said she has answered the phone, made appointments, delivered meals, and more.


"I just do whatever Hazel (Blankenship, executive director at Ohio Heartland Community Action Center) asks me to do," she said. "I worked at Marion County Community Action four years (1992-1996) and started going with Hazel's special group on trips and attended their meetings twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesdays, often helping cook special meals for them. When Hazel got the meal site, the group disbanded. She just didn't have time to do everything with the new requirements that came with the meal site."


Two years ago, her son, Brian Napper, encouraged her to become involved in a new after school program in New Bloomington where she lives. The New Vision Community Building hosts the after school program, which is supervised under the umbrella of Big Brothers/ Big Sisters of Marion County.


Scroggins said she contacted BB/BS, applied, was screened and approved as a volunteer. The program is held 4-6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and is coordinated and overseen by Cindy Creasap, educational services manager for BB/BS. Creasap has nothing but high praise for Scroggins.


"She is absolutely wonderful," Creasap said. "She is there all the time and brings treats to our kids often."


Creasap said the program currently has six children. One of the stipulations is that they must live in the New Bloomington area as they are dropped off at the center directly from school by an Elgin bus and the driver then returns at 5:45 p.m. and takes them to their homes.


Homework is the number one priority in the program. Children tackle their homework assisted by Scroggins, Creasap and volunteer teen Amanda Lynch.


Creasap said Scroggins is helpful as they teach life skills such as how to set the table properly, the importance of washing their hands and cleanliness in the kitchen.


Once a month, the families of the children are invited for a meal. Creasap said the majority of the food is cooked by BB/BS staff but Scroggins always shows up with her offering of food, too.


"We encourage families to sit together as a family and talk about their days events," Creasap said. "If one of the kids doesn't have any family come, Clara invites them to join her."


Creasap said Scroggins' rapport with the children is good and she is an encourager to them as well.


"She's always very positive, "Creasap said. "She's very much a believer of discipline and corrects them when they get out of line but she's very understanding and kind."


Scroggins said volunteering has been a learning experience for her.


"I've never done crafts before so I'm learning that right along with them (children)," she said. "I've learned algebra from the kids, things that I had forgotten how to do or never had the chance to learn when I went to school, I enjoy this so much. They give me new life and new energy. They're not much different than seniors because seniors go through a second childhood, too. They want attention and they want everything everybody else has."


When not volunteering with the children, Scroggins cooks three Saturdays a month at the community center for bingo.


"We have to have food so the players can eat while they play," she said.


She also works at the polls beginning first at the coliseum and at LaRue the election this month. But she did so with some apprehension because of the new voting machines.


"I'm computer illiterate," she said and laughed. "I told voters if I can do it, you can do it. We have 172 voters and only one of them said they preferred a paper ballot."


Her former neighbor and longtime friend, Gerry Johnson, said Scroggins has always been the first in the neighborhood to call at the time of a crisis or when she's hears of a need for assistance.


"She's a good neighbor," Johnson said. "Our kids grew up together. She's into volunteering at things, too, like me. When something needs done, Clara is the first to offer. She's got a good heart."

Title: 3 charged in home break-in where residents were tied up
Author: Bill McAuliffe; Staff Writer
Date: December 18, 1999
Section: NEWS
Page: 02B

Three men were charged Friday with first-degree aggravated robbery in connection with a home break-in in which two people were bound, gagged and blindfolded and their house ransacked.

Dale L. Latham, 21; William C. Ruble, 19, and Teiso L. Scroggins, 19, all of St. Paul, were charged in Ramsey County District Court.

According to court documents:

The three men told police they broke into the house on St. Clair Av. at Ayd Mill Rd. in St. Paul about 2:30 a.m. Thursday, intending to steal marijuana, money or both. A resident confronted them on the stairs and retreated to a bedroom to call 911, but the men broke into the bedroom and tied up two people there.

The men allegedly gathered more than $700 in cash as well as jewelry, other items and three small containers of marijuana. One threatened to shoot or stab the residents and displayed a gun.

After the men left, the victims quickly worked themselves free and called police. One of the victims, who had been able to see through her blindfold, identified Latham. Police arrested him at Ruble's home in the 2000 block of Marshall Av. shortly after 3 a.m. They arrested Ruble and Scroggins about 10 a.m. in the 700 block of Carroll Av.

They're being held in the Ramsey County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Title: Convict freed early is again charged in burglaries - State allowed repeat offender into program
Author: James Walsh; Staff Writer
Date: March 16, 2000
Section: NEWS
Page: 01B

Edina police detective Eric Kleinberg looked at a recent string of burglaries in Edina and south Minneapolis - how the homes were entered, how the thief stole only jewelry and furs and ignored stereos and televisions - and one person came to mind.

Mark T. Seaborn.

But it couldn't have been Seaborn, Kleinberg assumed. He was convicted last April of possessing stolen property and was supposed to be in prison serving a sentence of three years and eight months as a career criminal. "We thought it must be a copycat," Kleinberg said.

It was no copycat, authorities now say.

Seaborn was released from the state Department of Corrections' Challenge Incarceration Program in December, nearly two years before his expected release date. Authorities found Seaborn, 32, his girlfriend and about $30,000 worth of stolen items in their apartment last week.

Both were charged this week with receiving stolen property. Seaborn appeared Wednesday in Hennepin County District Court.

All of which has County Attorney Amy Klobuchar fuming. She said she wonders what she has to do to keep a chronic offender behind bars.

"An early release on a case like this undermines our efforts to ensure real and meaningful consequences for repeat and career property offenders," she said. "This is someone who's made a career of ripping people off."

The Challenge Incarceration Program, which accepted Seaborn last July, allows nonviolent offenders to shorten their prison time in exchange for six months of boot camp and a year of supervised release. If they violate the program, they could serve their full prison sentence.

State Corrections Commissioner Sheryl Ramstad Hvass said Wednesday that she now requires county attorneys and judges to be notified before an offender is admitted to the challenge program. That would allow prosecutors and judges to alert corrections officials to concerns about particular offenders.

The trouble is, the policy wasn't in effect when Seaborn was deemed eligible for the program last summer. And prosecutors weren't told that he had gotten out of prison until police brought the new case to them this week.

Kleinberg began investigating the latest burglaries in February and realized that Seaborn had been released after checking the Department of Corrections Web site. The detective found out that Seaborn was living with his girlfriend, June E. Scroggins, 30, in Minneapolis.

Police, knowing that Seaborn had a previous girlfriend pawn stolen items in earlier cases, started checking pawnshops. They found some of the stolen items, allegedly pawned by Scroggins.

On March 10, the manager at the Cash-N-Pawn on E. Lake Street in Minneapolis told police that Seaborn had just been in the store attempting to pawn a bracelet with at least seven carats of diamonds. The manager had refused to accept it, suspecting that it was stolen. On March 11, police arrested the couple.

In all, Kleinberg said, Seaborn is suspected of being involved in at least five burglaries, netting property worth as much as $200,000.

"The items that he was stealing represent not only large financial wealth, but extremely intimate wealth. These were gifts, heirlooms. Very valuable parts of people's lives were violated," Kleinberg said. "His burglaries struck right into people's hearts."

It's a pain that no one should have experienced, Klobuchar said; Seaborn should have been in prison.

What really stings, she said, was that officials used Seaborn's conviction last year as an example of their crackdown on career property criminals. They worked hard for a longer sentence because of Seaborn's impact - he already had six felony convictions, she said.

A Star Tribune series of reports last summer showed that thousands of Minnesota offenders, many low-level or property offenders, continually commit new crimes with little consequence in the form of prison or jail time. Klobuchar said officials will just have to keep trying.

"We can do nothing, except that the next time it comes around, we will again seek an upward departure [from sentencing guidelines]," she said. "And we will specifically notify the Department of Corrections that this is not the type of person to be released early."

.

Tackling communication

Ramstad Hvass said the department is trying to communicate better with county officials about offenders who are considered for early release. Since last spring, officials said, the department has called counties before putting offenders on work release. It started making the same kinds of calls a month ago for offenders who are eligible for the challenge program.

"I have every confidence that under our new procedure, this guy would have been brought to my attention, and the results would have been very different," Ramstad Hvass said.

Klobuchar said she hopes so.

"We believe that in the end, logic will triumph," she said.

73 YEARS AGO

The Pilgrims Rest Church in the Bethesda community is installing an
electric light system this week. On Sunday, Reed Marshall and S.A. Gill
will be ordained as deacons. The Rev. Kirkbride will preach the ordination
sermon, and the Rev. King will assist other ministers in the ordination
service.

Approximately 150 Independence County farmers attended a meeting in the
courthouse this morning called by the county agent to hear W.H. Muldrow,
Cooperative Extension agent in charge of the corn-hog reduction program,
explain the plan. E.D. White, marketing specialist for the Extension
Service, also a speaker, explained several charts which showed that prices
farmers had to pay went up while the products they had to sell went down
during the past several years. Cooperation with the government in
production control is the only hope of the farmer in bettering his economic
condition, the speaker said.

For those tardy Batesville vehicle owners who have put off buying their
city auto license tags until the last minute, Mayor E.F. DeCamp has
announced that he will remain in his office for a few hours after 6 p.m.
today to issue licenses. Those who wish to purchase tags for the reduced
rate of $3.50 must do so before the office closes tonight, as the regular
charge of $5 will be in effect after today. The mayor said there will be no
extension.

A searching party led by Mrs. Lula G. Parse, county probation officer,
found the grave of a small baby in the yard of a place in the Hutchinson
community which had been occupied by the Scroggins family. Mr. Scroggins
has been taken into custody and charged with murder.

County officials, county agents, home demonstration agents and others
flocked here today from many counties to hear W.R. Dyess explain the new
relief setup which is replacing the Civil Works Administration. Mr. Dyess
drove here by motor from Fayetteville to attend the gathering which was to
begin at 10 a.m., but he did not arrive until 1:30. The meeting was held in
the federal courtroom, and it is estimated that about 175 persons were in
attendance.

D.A. Scroggins, 58, must serve the rest of his life behind prison bars for
the slaying of an infant born to his daughter. That was the verdict
returned late last night by the jury in Independence County Circuit Court.
The courtroom was packed throughout the day yesterday. The defendant
received the verdict calmly and without emotion.

One of the biggest local Masonic meetings of the year will be held tonight
by Mount Zion Lodge No. 10 at 7:30. This will be the occasion of the
official visit of the grand master Thomas. Past grand master Fielding W.
Harris of Viola has already arrived in the city.

The one-day meeting of the district Parent Teachers Association held here
yesterday in Central school was attended by about 175. Mrs. John C. Miller
of Heber Springs is district president.

The death of Judge A.J. Craig at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W.R.
Shelpman of Salado, April 6, has recalled a colorful life for many citizens
of Independence County. Judge Craig was born at Jamestown May 27, 1844, the
descendant of a pioneer Arkansas family. His father was John Louis Craig, a
teacher of the Indians at Old Dwight Mission, which was one of the earliest
settlements in Arkansas. His grandfather, Joseph Hardin, came to Arkansas
in 1807.

B.A. Scroggins, 55, who was recently sentenced to the Arkansas penitentiary
for life by Judge Marcus Bone after a jury found him guilty of murder, was
shot to death Saturday night after trying to escape from Tucker prison
farm. Testimony was offered by another prisoner in the farm hospital where
Scroggins was being held for a case of mumps that Scroggins ripped off the
screen from a door and unbolted the door.

He was chased by a trusty guard, Lawrence Baker, who threatened to shoot if
he did not stop. Scroggins turned and attacked Baker with a knife and the
trusty guard shot him. The killing occurred about midnight.

During the trial here Scroggins told his attorney, W.M. Thompson, that he
would rather die in the electric chair than spend six months in the
penitentiary. He had been in the state prison only two weeks.

A man by the name of Bellamay, 28, was brought here from Lynn Saturday
night and placed in the hospital suffering from a severe wound in his head
as a result of a fight. It was said that Bellamay with a knife was chasing
a man who picked up an axe and struck him in the head. Physicians said
Bellamay has a chance to recover.

Raymond Clark, 30, who escaped from jail here last month, was taken into
custody Sunday in the strawberry fields near Russell in White County by
Sheriff Jake Engles, Gray Albright of Jackson County and postal inspector
William J. White of Batesville. Clark was held on a charge of robbery of
the post office at Swifton.

Chester Hill, 8, son of Ordil Hill, a farmer living north of Batesville,
lost three fingers of his right hand Saturday afternoon when a dynamite cap
exploded. He was visiting relatives at Guion when he found the cap, which
he placed on a stone and struck it with another rock.
