VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): As friends and family mourn the loss of a 77-year-old Victorville woman who was slain while in her apartment, the man suspected of her murder appeared in court on Thursday.
On the afternoon of Monday, February 8th deputies arrived at an apartment complex near El Evado and Begonia Roads in response to the report of a woman deceased in the apartment. Shirley Stewart was located in her home and was confirmed to be deceased.

Scott’s criminal history includes buying or receiving stolen property, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance and indecent exposure. He was sentenced to probation in all cases but later served time due to probation violations.
