Pittsburg County man convicted in the 2016 drowning death of his daughter

Ponca City Now - September 14, 2018 10:01 am

On Thursday, a Pittsburg County jury convicted 23-year-old Devin Sizemore in the 2016 drowning death of his 21-month-old daughter.

The Krebs Police Department requested the assistance of the OSBI in July 2016, when Sizemore was found in a pond with his daughter’s unresponsive body floating nearby. The toddler was transported to the emergency department where she was pronounced dead.

Sizemore was taken into custody but became combative, attempting to drown a Krebs officer.

The jury convicted Sizemore of assault and battery on a police officer and recommended a sentence of five years. The jury also convicted Sizemore of first degree murder for his daughter’s death and recommended life without parole.
