First court appearance for Marshall Co. man accused of killing family full of outbursts

MADILL, Okla. (KXII) - 56-year-old Kevin Moseley of Kingston made his initial appearance at the Marshall County courthouse Tuesday afternoon where he made a few outbursts during that appearance.

Kevin Moseley faces three charges of first degree murder for allegedly shooting and killing his wife, Monica Moseley, and two step children, 16-year-old Johnathan and 12-year-old Stephanie Horath, at their home last week.

Several members of the victims' family were present at the appearance.

During the appearance, Moseley made outbursts while the judge and prosecution were scheduling further court dates saying "We don't need an agreement, I plead guilty to all charges," and "I didn't kill my wife but I will plead guilty."

The judge advised him it would be in his best interest to keep quiet.

If found guilty, Moseley could face up to life in prison or the death penalty.

"Under Oklahoma law, there's certain types of first degree that are death penalty-eligible, this case certainly meets that criteria," District Attorney Craig Ladd said.

Ladd said he plans to speak with the victims' family members more but the death penalty is on the table.

"We had a chance to meet with them for about 45 minutes today but (the death penalty) is certainly something we are seriously contemplating," Ladd said.

A funeral for the victims is scheduled for Friday morning at 11 at New Beginnings Church in Madill.

Moseley will be back in court Mon. Oct. 21 at 9:30 a.m. for a preliminary hearing conference.
