Perkins man charged in father’s death

Ponca City Now - October 25, 2018 5:01 pm

PERKINS — Charges were filed Wednesday against 36-year-old Jerry Ray Craine for the July shooting death of his father, Thomas Richard Craine.

On July 29, 2018, Thomas Craine was found shot to death at the home he shared with his son Jerry at 129 Payne Street in Perkins, OK.

Perkins police department requested OSBI assistance in the case. Jerry gave a statement to agents that was later found to conflict with evidence found at the crime scene. Jerry has a criminal record which includes a March 2018 guilty plea to misdemeanor assault and battery in the presence of minor children, for which he was currently on supervised probation.

Jerry Craine was arrested Wednesday by Perkins police department and booked into the Payne County jail on one count of first-degree manlaughter.
