Mountain Home, Ark. — Christina Scroggins is now scheduled to make a May 8 appearance at 10 a.m. before 14th Judicial District Judge John Putman. Previously Scroggins had been set to go to trial on March 17, but that was cancelled.
Scroggins, 25, of rural Mountain Home, is free on $500,000 bond, charged with the first degree murder of Raul Sugura Turietta, 24, last Spring. Scroggins is accused of shooting Raul, putting him in the trunk of the car she was driving and driving him around until she went to the home of a friend, Henry Hodges, and told them that she thought she had killed someone. This was at 5:50 a.m. April 2
When the police were called, they found Turietta in the trunk of the car and took Scroggins into custody. During their investigation police determined that Scroggins had been with the victim in Little Rock the day before and had visited Boscos and a Shell Station in Maumelle.
Police said the victim had been killed by three gunshot wounds, two to the head and one to the chest.
Scroggins is being represented by Drew Ledbetter of Fayetteville, Ark.
