Vinita, OK: Crain County man shot and killed; wife being held without bond

A Craig County man was shot and killed in what police said was the result of a domestic altercation.

According to Craig County First Assistant District Attorney Bryce Lair, John W. Beisley, 65, of Vinita died as a result of the shooting and his wife, Glendora Beisley, 48, also of Vinita, is being held in the Craig County jail without bond.

Lair said the slaying happened at the couple's rural Craig County home northwest of Vinita.

Glendora Beisley is being held on a complaint of first-degree manslaughter, said Jessica Brown, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman. Brown said the charge could be amended.

OSBI agents received the call around 4:40 a.m. Saturday but believe John Beisley died before midnight, she said. Brown said after the shooting, Glendora Beisley drove herself to the Muskogee 911 Center where law enforcement agents called Craig County authorities.

John Beisley was charged in May 2005 with domestic assault and battery, a misdemeanor. That charge was dropped in December, court records show.
