Tulsa, Okla. - Teenager Scott Mooney's defense team failed to get evidence suppressed on Wednesday.
Tulsa court records show the judge denied the motion to suppress evidence in the arrest of the teen accused of killing a woman back in December. The defense team argued the evidence resulted from an illegal arrest.
Mooney has been charged with first-degree murder and second-degree burglary.
Early Tuesday morning the Tulsa County Sheriff’s office was called in to assist Jenks police after a burglary turned into a homicide.
The arrest and booking report from the incident states the homicide happened around 9 p.m. on Monday.
Investigators revealed more details about the crime at a media conference Wednesday afternoon.
Detectives believe that 14-year-old Joshua Scott Mooney broke into a home looking for cash.
During the burglary, Mary Escue came in, not knowing that Mooney was burglarizing the home.
Investigators tell KRMG that Mooney got scared and ended up shooting Escue with a .22 rifle he found in the home.
Deputies quickly received a lead when stolen items from the house showed up in Sapulpa.
An arrest report states detectives searched the area and soon found the victim's 2009 Chevrolet Malibu with three occupants inside.
The three people were taken into custody for questioning.
The police report states that Mooney confessed to the homicide.
He told detectives his goal was to break into the home and steal money.
Things started to go wrong when Mary Escue came home.
The report states Mooney grabbed one of the victim's guns, forced her into the computer room, aimed for her head and fired.
After he killed her, the police report said Mooney then took her wallet, the keys to her vehicle and took off toward Sapulpa.
Mooney said he went to Sapulpa because he knew he had to leave Tulsa County.
He was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on counts of murder first degree, burglary second degree and larceny of an auto.
The two males in the car when Mooney was apprehended are not believed to be a part of the homicide and have not been arrested.
Jenks Police Chief Cameron Arthur revealed at Wednesday's media conference that Mooney is no stranger to the Department.
When questioned, Arthur declined to reveal specifics.
