Delores Eggert Pleads Guilty Avoids Capital Murder Trial
« on: August 31, 2009, 06:24:49 PM »
Eggert Wants Bail Set

FAYETTEVILLE A woman accused of beating her mother with a tire iron, shooting her and burning the body wants a judge to set bail for her.

Delores Lee Eggert, 49, is charged with capital murder. If convicted she faces life in prison or the death penalty. Prosecutors have not said if they will seek the death penalty.

Trial is set for Nov. 16 in Washington County Circuit Court.

Eggert's motion contends she's been a resident of Washington County for 20 years, ran her own cleaning business and has no prior criminal history. The motion also states Eggert has family members who will vouch for her reputation, character and mental condition and will make sure she appears for court.

Eggert has been in the Washington County Jail since April 20.

Pauline Devor was 70 when she disappeared in June 2007. Authorities found remains on the Devors' farm near Cincinnati in northwest Washington County in April after an unnamed woman told police she helped Eggert burn Devor's body.

Yup I am sure they are going to get right on that!

Prosecutors Won't Seek Death Penalty Against Eggert


FAYETTEVILLE Washington County prosecutors won't seek the death penalty against Delores Eggert, who is charged with capital murder in the death of her mother.

Eggert, 49, is accused of beating and shooting her mother and burning the body in a rural area of Washington County.

Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Matt Durrett didn't cite details, but said the case was not appropriate for the death penalty.

"You don't seek the death penalty just for the sake of it," he said Monday.

With the death penalty off the table, Eggert will receive an automatic life term without parole if she's convicted of capital murder.

Pauline Devor was 70 when she disappeared in June 2007.

 Sheriff Tim Helder said in April that investigators had found charred bone fragments and other human remains in a secluded area on the Devor's farm near Cincinnati in northwest Washington County. He said Eggert told a woman, who was wearing a wire, that she threw some of the remains into a river.

Durrett said last week he feels he has plenty of evidence for a conviction without a body.

Bone fragments and other evidence have been forwarded from the Arkansas State Crime Lab to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's crime lab for further analysis. That could take anywhere from six weeks to six months, prosecutors said. Trial is set for Nov. 16, but is expected to be reset to allow evidence to be processed.

Eggert is being held at the Washington County jail without bond.

Arkansas has executed two women in the past 162 years.

Lavinia Burnett of Washington County was the first woman hanged in the state on Nov. 8, 1845. It was also the first legal hanging in Washington County.

Lavinia, along with her husband, Crawford, and their son, John, were hanged for the murder of Jonathan Selby. Selby, a bachelor who lived near Fayetteville, was murdered for money he supposedly kept at his house.

The last woman executed by the state was Christina Marie Riggs, 28, who asked for the death penalty for drugging and suffocating her two children in 1996 at her home in Sherwood. She was executed by lethal injection May 2, 2000.

Justice is not about bringing back the dead. It is not about revenge either. Justice is about enforcing consequences for one's own actions to endorse personal responsibility. We cannot expect anyone to take responsibility for their own actions if these consequences are not enforced in full.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  My oldest sister married an Arkie.  He brought all his Arkie relatives out to Arizona.  He lived like a hillbilly.  His place looked like a hillbilly's lair.  He acted like a hillbilly.  And he humped anything or anyone who did not move fast enough, including his own female kin.  I can definitely see how inbreeding happens in that state.  They are perfectly willing to export their behavior elsewhere to teach us backward people how it's done. YUCK!

Look!  Inbreeding even produced Bill Clinton!
" Closure? Closure is a misused word in the English language.  There is no such thing as closure for the family of a murder victim.  There will never be any closure for the death of our loved ones until we are dead ourselves.  The families have a lifetime sentence of anguish and sadness."

Capital Murder Trial Canceled With Guilty Plea


The capital murder trial for a Washington County woman accused beating and killing her mother was set to start Monday, but the defendant, Delores Eggert, pleaded guilty early Monday morning to first-degree murder in her mother's death.

Eggert changed her plea from not guilty to guilty, admitting she shot her mother three times, causing her death. Eggert was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Delores Eggert was accused of beating and shooting her 70-year old mother, then burning her body. Prosecutors decided last year that she won't face the death penalty.

Bob Devor, Pauline Devor's husband and Delores Eggert's stepfather, was arrested Monday and charged hindering apprehension and tampering with evidence.

Sheriff Tim Helder said, "Devor staged a crime scene in his home to try and throw investigators off." Helder also said that Bob Devor was not surprised when he was arrested and said he expected it.

Helder also said that Eggert and Bob Devor had been in a sexual relationship for at least a year before Pauline Devor was killed.

Helder said they believe the reason Pauline Devor was killed was a credit card that Eggert stole from her mother and that Eggert believed she would be prosecuted for the theft and so killed her mother to cover up the theft.

Eggert's mother, Pauline Devor, disappeared three years ago. Her remains were found in 2009 on her family's farm in northwestern Washington County.

Last year, investigators with the state crime lab said they needed more time to prepare before a capital murder trial could begin.
