Webb City man pleads guilty to second degree murder

Updated July 23, 2013 at 12:20 PM CST:  Just before his jury trial was to be held a Webb City man says he is guilty of murder.

On September 1, 2011 authorities were called to a home on East 20th Street in Duquesne.  That's where they found the body of Travis Weaver, 43 of Carthage.  Authorities say Weaver died from blunt trauma and appeared to have been beaten multiple times in the head and face with a large wooden weapon.

Ronald Inman, now 32, was arrested and charged with second degree murder.  He initially entered a plea of not guilty.

However, on Tuesday, Inman changed his plea to guilty.

The court accepted the plea and sentencing is scheduled for September 23 at 9:00 a.m.

 

Updated September 8, 2011 at 3:15 PM CST:  A Webb City man says he is not guilty in last week's murder of a 43 year-old Carthage man.

Ronald Inman was arraigned in Jasper County court this morning.  The 30-year-old is charged with second degree murder in the death of Travis Weaver.

Authorities say Weaver died from blunt trauma last Thursday after deputies say he and Inman got into a fight at this home in Duquesne.

According to the report Inman hit the victim in the head and face several times with a large piece of wood.

Inman is expected back in court next month.

Reported September 2, 2011 at 8:15 PM CST:  An arrest made involving a Southwest Missouri homicide.  Authorities were called to a home on east 20th street in Duquesne last night.  That's where they found the body of 43-year old Travis weaver of Carthage.

Police say Weaver died from blunt trauma and appeared to have been beaten multiple times in the head and face with a large wooden weapon.

A 30-year old Webb City man and 24-year old woman from Joplin were arrested.

"We started an investigation, apparently there had been an altercation there where a subject had died," says Captain Derek Walrod of the Jasper County Sheriff's Department.  "They did not live there.  Again we believe they were all acquaintances, they knew each other, but none of them were residents of that house from what we understand."

Second degree and felony murder charges have been filed against Ronald Inman.  He has a cash-only bond of $25,000.

The woman will not be charged.

    On Monday, September 25, 2017, we will have a system-wide water shutdown.  Starting at 6:00 AM, we will begin closing off valves at our storage tank to deplete our distribution system.  We need to change a hydrant and add two main-line valves into our system and are unable to do so while the system is pressurized.  What this means for you is that there will be no available water services starting at 6:00 AM.  All of the prep work for these jobs should be completed ...More >>
