Charges have been filed against Holly Marie Kellogg, 49, of Atoka, for the shooting death of Curtis Pines.
On Friday, July 17, 2020, the Atoka County Sheriff’s Department Dispatch received a 911 call from Kellogg claiming she had just shot and killed a man.
When First responders and Law Enforcement Officers arrived on scene they discovered the body of Curtis Pines laying near the front door of a residence on South Potubby Creek Road.
On Saturday, July 18, 2020, Kellogg was interveiwed by Special Agent Donnie Long, with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, after she waived her rights to remain silent.
Kellogg stated she received a phone call from a minor living at the residence on South Potubby Creek Road, but no one spoke during the phone call. In the background, Kellogg stated she could hear screaming.
Reports state that she retrieved her .22 caliber handgun, and drove to the residence where she saw the minor climbing out the window to leave the residence, “frantic and scared smooth to death.”
The minor told Kellogg “I do not want to be here,” and asked to be taken away from the residence. The minor got into Kellogg’s vehicle.
Kellogg entered the door of the residence to see Pines arguing with her friend. She told the friend to go outside with the minor.
Pines and Kellogg confronted each other. Kellogg stated she fired a warning shot into the floor. Pines continued to yell at her, and physically pushed Kellogg.
She stated she touched Pines chest to keep him away from her person, but he continued to move towards her.
During the interview, Kellogg informed the Deputy she believed he was going to hurt her when she shot Pines twice. She described him as having the, “look of the devil in his face.”
Kellogg is charged with murder in the first degree – deliberate intent (felony), and feloniously pointing firearm (felony). She is currently being held at the Atoka County Jail on a one million dollar bond.
