Couple charged in connection with $1,200 missing

McALESTER — The two people who were arrested Wednesday in connection with missing money from a lost wallet at the  Wal-Mart Supercenter were charged Thursday.

Jonathan Caldwell, 23, of Hartshorne, and Deann Sumpter, 30, also of Hartshorne, appeared Thursday in front of Special District Judge Jennifer McBee for an initial court appearance.

Caldwell and Sumpter were arrested Wednesday by McAlester police and were alleged to have conspired to steal $1,200

Attorney Breken Wagner represented the two Wednesday in court. Wagner said that he and the DA worked out a deal that would allow the two to be released on their own recognizance. McBee agreed to grant them the bond and Caldwell and Sumpter are due back in court on July 25.

Caldwell was charged with grand larceny and conspiracy, while Sumpter was charged with conspiracy.

They both pleaded not guilty to the charges.
