Mark Deon Thompson

Mark Deon Thompson, 19, of Muskogee was sentenced to life in prison for murdering Kevyawna Roshea Jackson-Hall, who was 18, on Sept. 28, 2018, District Attorney Orvil Loge said today.

One month after Jackson-Hall moved into an apartment with Thompson’s sister, Thompson kicked in the apartment’s door, ran up to Jackson-Hall and shot her nine times with a semi-automatic pistol.

Thompson was convicted on Jan. 27 of this year and District Judge Bret Smith sentenced him today to life in prison. Under Oklahoma law, he must serve 38.25 years before he can be eligible to be considered for parole.
