Maurice Dean Ballard

Maurice Dean Ballard, 41, of Okay was sentenced today to life in prison for an attack on Valentine’s Day last year in the parking lot of Muskogee Creek Nation Travel Plaza.

The attack occurred at 4:48 a.m., when Ballard smashed Kaleb Tate, then 25, in the head with a claw hammer, knocking him unconscious.

Ballard was also convicted in 2005 of first-degree manslaughter for stabbing Scott Cannon to death with a knife.
