Press release


A Chelsea mother and grandmother sentenced in death of 12-year-old girl in Rogers County District Court.


According to a press release from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, in April of 2017, Chelsea Police Department requested OSBI investigative assistance due to the death of a 12-year-old female.


The mother of the female child, Jennifer Spurlock, 36, and the grandmother of the child, 60 year old Velva Patteson, both of Chelsea, were arrested on charges of Second Degree Murder.


Both Spurlock and Patteson failed to seek medical attention for the child after she injected several of Velva Patteson's prescription medication; which resulted in the child's death.


Spurlock and Patteson entered blind pleas in Rogers County District Court.


Spurlock was sentenced to 20 year in prison and Patteson was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
