ARDMORE, Okla. -- Two teenagers involved in the death of Steven Paul Goddard are expected to make their initial court appearance on Wednesday, and one suspect who was at large has turned himself in to authorities.

Carter County district attorney Craig Ladd says Alex Scallion and Sha'ron Fields, both 14 years old, are being charged as adults in the murder of 53-year-old Steven Paul Goddard.

Goddard was beaten to death on Saturday on the 700 block of First and Park Streets.

Authorities have already arrested Bruce Booker, 46, in connection to the crime.

Another man said to be involved in the beating, Jason Scallion, 23, turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday afternoon.

Scallion and 24-year-old De’ondre Maytubby have both been wanted by authorities since the incident was initially investigated over the weekend. Police are still looking for Maytubby, but Detective Ryan
Hunnicut with the Ardmore Police Department hopes the other suspect will follow in Scallion’s footsteps.

"I can’t say what makes a man commit a crime or turn himself in. We’re happy he turned himself in. That’s always a much more peaceful resolution."

Hunnicut says Scallion will face murder charges for his role in the beating that led to Goddard’s death.

If anyone has any information on Maytubby’s whereabouts, they are asked to call the Ardmore Police Department at (580) 504-4LAW (4529).

    there is no reason for anyone to try to be the judge of this case. none of you guys have facts. you don't know the real story. and most of you sound very ignorant!! God is the only one who can judge anybody. And for those of you who know the lord knows he forgives anybody for anything if they choose to give there life to Him. So stop worrying about them going to heaven or hell and worry about where your going. Because all sins are the same in gods eyes no matter what it is. Some of you need to be aware of what you say before you say it. because what you wish for somebody else can always come back to you.

    i sit here and read all the comments the truth is god knows what s best for each of us you can say all the bad thing you like god forgives until you people realize hatre doesnt get you anywhere no matter what race you are god loves us all he is the judge not you or me.so the best thing we all is stop judging others and and look at yourself you dont know life has instore for you or one of your family members and to the court system you better be careful for what you do because god has his eye on you to and in the end he has the final say so gos bless you all and remember hes whating you to.

    As someone who had a family member stabbed to death by a 14 year old girl May 19, 2007 in Cushing OK, I do believe teens should be tried as adults,when they take a life. If they go throught the juvenile system they will be let go at age 19 with no record. Where's the second chance for the victims?
