Sylvania Woman Pleads Guilty in Murder

Written by  Wednesday, 04 December 2013 14:09

Samantha Scott entered a guilty plea on charges in her father's murder and she will go to prison with a possibility of parole. Investigators charged Samantha and Randy Scott in May with the murder of her father, Kenneth Jones, after he'd been missing for months. Samantha Scott must testify against her husband in compliance with her plea.

District Attorney Hayward Altman said that the Scott's were living off Jones' Social Security income and they killed him when he tried to move away. Altman said the Scott's buried the 75 year old in a remote family cemetery and continued to collect his checks and used his credit/debit cards.

Felony murder and malice murder charges that carried life without parole sentences were dropped in agreement for Mrs. Scott’s testimony against her husband.
