Man Suspected of Murdering an Elderly Woman Denies All Charges

VICTORVILLE-(  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.

The nature of her injuries caused deputies to request the San Bernardino County Homicide Detail to continue with the investigation. The investigation led detectives to 26-year-old convicted felon, Terrence Marzet Scott.

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.

Terrence Marzet Scott, 26 denied all charges against him on Thursday, February 11, 2016, at the Victorville Superior Court. Scott remains at the High Desert Detention center in lieu of $1 million bail.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Homicide Detail, Detective Nick Hartleben or Sergeant John Gaffney at (909) 387-3589.
