Kellyville man arrested on first-degree murder charges, OSBI investigating

Creek County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested a Kellyville man on first-degree murder charges regarding a possible homicide late last week.

Officer Fred Clark told Sapulpa Times that the call came in at 8:19 in the morning on Friday, October 16th about a shooting on 241st W. Ave, just west of Kellyville. When the deputies arrived, they found 29-year-old Marcus Sewell deceased in the home, with a single gunshot wound to the head, and the suspect was gone. Agents recovered a .38 special pistol with one chamber fired.


Clark said while the deputies were still at the scene, 42-year-old James Scott Robinson returned to the home and was taken into custody at the time.

Sapulpa Times later obtained the affidavit from the Creek County District Attorney’s office that had additional details.

According to the affidavit, Robinson told Creek County deputies that he and his girlfriend had picked up Sewell walking on Highway 66 near Polecat Creek in Kellyville. Deputies later interviewed the girlfriend, who told them that she’d received text messages from Robinson to come and get him from the Burger King at 41st and Memorial in Tulsa. The affidavit states that at about 6:30 a.m. she went and picked up Robinson and an unknown male—believed to have been Sewell—and drove them to the residence where the incident in question happened.

According to the affidavit, Robinson told Creek County Sheriff’s Deputies that when they arrived at the home, Sewell sat on the couch while Robinson went to retrieve a gun from a nearby bedroom. Robinson says that when he re-entered the living room, Sewell began “mouthing to him,” calling him a member of the United Aryan Brotherhood and that Sewell threatened to kill him. Another witness said he saw Robinson punch Sewell in the face and that Sewell fell down. The witness said that Robinson then grabbed Sewell and threw him against the front door and that when he got back up, Robinson shot him.

Robinson is only recently out of prison, according to the Creek County Sheriff’s Office. In 2007 he was charged with assault & battery with a deadly weapon, child abuse, and kidnapping charges.
