Probation given in sibling shooting, pot growing cases

By CHRISTIN COYNE

A Millsap woman accused of shooting her brother in the chest with a pellet rifle during a dispute was recently given probation.

Ramona Kathalene Fox, 54, confessed to entering her brother’s residence and shooting her brother in the chest on Oct. 26 after he previously went to her residence and destroyed her property, the Parker County Sheriff’s Office reported at the time.

Deputies reportedly found the man lying on the couch covered in “copious” amounts of blood at his residence on Brazos Rock Road.

He was transported by helicopter to the hospital.

In a plea arrangement, Fox received six years deferred adjudication probation and a $750 fine on Aug. 23, according to court records.

Deferred adjudication allows defendants to complete probation requirements and avoid a formal conviction.

Marijuana grow

Three people accused of growing more than $40,000 worth of marijuana in their Weatherford home in June 2011 were recently given deferred adjudication probation sentences.

415th District Judge Graham Quisenberry ordered Theodore Franklin Cromer III, 49, to serve three years probation and pay a $750 fine on a third-degree felony charge of possession of marijuana, in an amount of more than 5 pounds, less than 50 pounds, on Aug. 23. 

About 120 marijuana plants were located in a ventilated and climate-controlled indoor nursery in the family’s home in the 100 block of West Owens Street, according to the Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit.  

Larry Don Summers, 30, received a sentence of five years deferred adjudication probation and a $2,500 fine on the same charge, according to court records.

Dustin Taylor Cromer, 20, received two years deferred adjudication probation and a $300 fine on a charge of possession of marijuana, in an amount of more than 2 ounces, less than 4 ounces.

No case has been filed in district court against Teresa Wickline Cromer, who was also arrested with her family members, according to court records.
