Alleged Murderer Indicted for Kidnapping

Story By Wade Cameron

An alleged murderer who was caught in East Texas has been indicted. Scott James Eizember was indicted this week by a federal grand jury in Arkansas for the kidnapping of Dr. Samuel W. Peebles and his wife, Martha, after fleeing from Depew, Oklahoma. The couple later shot Eizember on a road south of Diboll as they attempted to escape.

Before he faces charges in Arkansas, Eizember will first be tried for the shooting deaths of a Depew, Oklahoma couple. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 13th.
