and if they have nothing to link this man to this crime why are they making him go to trial now. cause if they find him not guilty then find evidence that he is guilty, he will get off scott free cause of the double jeopardy law. just wondering.

"He threatened to stuff her mom in a barrell land put her in the lake. Pretty ironic that that's how they found her."

I find it quite convenient that the mother did not tell this story to police during the initial investigation but remembered it years later when they found the body (in the manner mentioned above )and started looking at the stepfather as a suspect.

This whole thing is so silly.Everyone already knows that if you are a man and do anything to a woman or child in Muskogee, if and when you are found guilty all you will get is a suspended sentence.

Been there, done that.

You got that right! I still remember the case (LaBounty)in Muskogee where a guy molested his 9 year old step daughter. When the mother found out about it she moved out and got the girl away from it but did not report it to the police because of the stigma and trial that she did not want the girl to have to go though. The powers that be in Muskogee found out that she did not turn the creep in.
It wound up in court and what do you think happened?

The stepfather was found guilty and was given a 20 year suspended sentence but they threw the book at the mother!

The town should be ashamed of themselves for letting this type of injustice go on. I put them blame square on their shoulders. The total apathy of the citizens of Muskogee is disgusting.
