A Grady County violent offender serving two concurrent 50-year sentences with the Department of Corrections for shooting with intent to kill has been passed to a stage two hearing.
Roy R. Henderson, 47, aka Kevin J. Tipps, began his sentence in Sept. 1995 for shooting at Beth Ann West and Wayne Hubbard with a shotgun. Court documents show that both were wounded with gun shot to the head.
Records also show that Henderson was West's ex-boyfriend.
Henderson recently had his case jacket reviewed by the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board at the April 17-20 meeting held at the Hillside Community Corrections Center in Oklahoma City.
Violent offenders have their jackets reviewed at stage one of a two-part hearing and if passed to stage two, make an appearance before the board at the next parole hearing.
Henderson was passed to stage two and will make a personal appearance before the parole board at the May 15-18 meeting at the Hillside Community Corrections Center in Oklahoma City.
In a separate case, a Grady County man who was convicted for raping and murdering his 11-year-old stepdaughter in 1982 was denied parole at the April meeting.
Records show that Steven Wilson, 60, who was 31 at the time of the violent offense, phoned the Tuttle Police Department at about 6:15 a.m. on May 12, 1982, and said he had found his 11-year-old stepdaughter, Audra Lynn Matheny, dead in her bed when he went in to wake her up for school.
Her mother was visiting family out-of-state, court documents show. About eight months before the offense, the Wilsons had moved to Tuttle where they were setting up their own business.
Wilson was convicted and received a life sentence, which he began with the DOC in Dec. 1982. His attorney appealed and filed three post-conviction relief requests over about a three-year-period. All were denied.
Other inmates on the April docket and their results are as follows:
• Davis, Thomas James, who is serving a 30-year sentence for unlawful distribution of a controlled drug (cocaine) after former conviction of a felony, was denied parole. He began his sentence in Aug. 2007 and has several concurrent cases on file.
• Eades, Nolan Lamar, who is serving a seven-year sentence with two years suspended for burglary in the second degree after former conviction of a felony, was denied parole. He began his sentence in Jan. 2008 and was rebelled in Dec. 2009.
• Harvey, Dianna Gayle, who is serving a 10-year sentence with six years suspended for plan/attempt/conspire to perform an act of violence was denied parole. She began her sentence in Dec. 2009.
• Kyle, Cheryl Lynn, who is serving a five-year sentence with three years suspended for furnishing alcohol beverages to a person under 21, was denied parole. She began her sentence in Dec. 2009 and was rebelled in June 2011.
• Martin, Tony, who is serving a 38-year sentence for larceny of merchandise from a retailer after former conviction of a felony, was denied parole. He began his sentence in May 1998.
• Stuckey, James S., who is serving a 20-year sentence with 10 year suspended for assault and battery with a deadly weapon, was denied parole. He began his sentence in May 2004.
