Two suspects held in connection to Scammon, KS homicide

Updated:
Crystal Galloway, 36 (pictured at left), and Dakota Cunningham, 18, are currently being held at the Ottawa County Jail in connection to the death of Robin L. Fought, 59, of Dennis, Kansas.

On Friday, May 15, at about 11:20 am, Cherokee County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call regarding a vehicle on fire in rural Cherokee County, Kansas. Deputies, along with Columbus and Scammon fire departments, arrived on scene at Belleview Road, approximately 1.5 miles east of K7 Highway, to discover the body of Robin L. Fought, 59, of Dennis, Kansas. Investigators with the Sheriff's office, Kansas State Fire Marshal's office and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation have determined Fought was intentionally killed.

A search warrant was conducted on a Scammon home and probable cause was established leading Cherokee County Attorney Nathan Coleman to file second degree intentional murder charges against both Galloway and Cunningham. Information obtained late Saturday night led investigators to believe the suspects were in Ottawa County, Oklahoma. Deputies with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department placed Galloway and Cunningham under arrest and transported them to Ottawa County Jail.

According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department, no additional arrests are anticipated at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

    Tuition is still going up at Missouri Southern State University, but it's tweaking the cost increase to credit hours to avoid a state fine. Missouri Southern's Board of Governors approved a 15 percent increase in student tuition last April, upping credit hours by $30. But state education law doesn't allow tuition increases beyond the consumer price index. To avoid a $1.1 million fine, MSSU adjusted down the tuition increase to $20 more per credit.
