Mountain Home, Ark. — The case of accused murderess Christina M. Scroggin of rural Mountain Home, has been put on hold until results from a mental evaluation are received, according to a spokesman for Circuit Court Judge John Putman’s office.
Scroggin was scheduled to appear in court last week, but no action was taken.
She has been charged with the murder of 24-year-old Raul Segura Turietta whom she is accused of shooting and driving around with the victim in the trunk of her car.
Police became aware of the murder when Scroggin showed up a friend’s house saying that she thought she had killed someone. Police traced a timeline showing that Turietta and Scroggin had been in Little Rock eating at a restaurant and stopping at a Shell Station in Maumelle prior to his death.
Scroggin had been arrested in April 2013 has been let out on $50,000 bond and been scheduled for several jury trials and had them cancelled and now is waiting for an evaluation which reportedly was ordered this March.
Scroggin’s attorney is Drew Ledbetter of Fayetteville.
