Teens in court, man wanted for murder turns self in

By  | 

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).
