Scobee trial begins today

Monday, January 14, 2008

After more than two years, the Clay County Prosecutor's Office will present evidence in the case against Lisa Ann Scobee in Clay County Circuit Court today.

Scobee is on trial for a class C felony charge of failure to stop after an accident resulting in death for her involvement in the Nov. 13, 2005, accident that resulted in the death of her husband, Brian E. Scobee, 45, Carbon.

During the initial investigation, Indiana State Police investigators learned that Brian Scobee was a passenger in an SUV driven by his wife when he exited the vehicle for unknown reasons.

His unconscious body was later found lying in the roadway on County Road 200.

Upon arrival by members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, deputes found Lisa Ann Scobee and her brother performing CPR on Brian Scobee, who was later pronounced dead at St. Vincent Clay Hospital.

Pathologist Dr. Roland Kohr performed an autopsy on Scobee at Terre Haute Regional Hospital and concluded he died from massive head injuries, but no determination of the cause for the injuries was released.

ISP investigators and Kohr are expected to testify at the trial, which will be presided over by Clay Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout, which began at 9 a.m.
