Jessie Dean Mosby, 35, charged with first degree murder in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw, is awaiting transport to Eastern State Hospital's Oklahoma Forensic Center in Vinita for determination of competency, as ordered by the court Monday. Associate District Judge Kyle Waters ordered the competency evaluation at the request of Mosby's court-appointed attorney, Jeffrey Brant Jones of Stilwell. Mosby cannot be transported to the center until a bed becomes available, said a spokesman for the Sequoyah County jail where Mosby is being held without bond. No beds were available on Tuesday.
Mosby was charged March 16 with murder in the first degree--malice aforethought--for the shooting death of his mother, Karen Gregg. Gregg was found slumped in her car on March 2 on Ruth Street in Sallisaw with a gunshot wound to the head. Witnesses placed Mosby at the scene, and an investigation by Sallisaw police and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation found shell casings and footprints that led back to Mosby. He was arrested March 3.
