District Attorney Seeks Death Sentence In Stillwater Near-Beheading Case
STILLWATER, Oklahoma - The Payne County District Attorney filed papers Monday seeking the death penalty for a man accused of nearly beheading his friend in Stillwater in October 2014.
Authorities said Isaiah Zoar Marin repeatedly stabbed Jacob Crockett with a machete. Court documents said the victim went through conscious pain and suffering as he pleaded with Marin to stop and tried to push the machete away from his body as Marin continued to hurt him.
The filing by the Payne County District Attorney also noted Marin “expressed his desire to kill two of his brothers on the same day of the murder of Jacob Crockett.” He reportedly said he had wanted to kill them “for awhile.”
Marin was arrested while walking down a road with the machete. He dialed 911 and confessed to the crime.
