Murder Charges Filed In Pine City Death
On Thursday’s Pine County Sheriff’s report, Sheriff Robin Cole told us that a criminal complaint had been issued charging Donnell Patricia Scott (born in 1984) with one count of Murder in the third degree.
The charge stems from the death of the defendants estranged husband, Clayton Scott, who was discovered unresponsive in his home on 9-29-2012.
An investigation at the scene of the death led to a six-month investigation, which uncovered the information contained in the criminal complaint.
Donnell Scott is not considered a danger to the public and currently indisposed at a known location.
Cole said that the complaint alleges Scott gave her estranged husband some methadone, which apparently caused his death.
