(Stillwater) — A convicted Cushing triple murderer’s mother — who herself is facing assorted charges in Noble County including armed robbery north of Stillwater — has been accused of concealing property that was stolen from her employer’s home in Cushing.
    DeGina Gay Lansford, 40, of Cushing, who remains in the Noble County Jail on $125,000 bail, was charged last week in Payne County with having possessed personal property stolen that was reportedly stolen from the owner of the Buckhorn Bar in Cushing last summer.
    Lansford refused to be interviewed at the Noble County Sheriff’s Office by Cushing Police Detective Adam Harp, according to an affidavit filed that was filed in Payne County court records last week.
    Lansford was employed by Steve Walker at the Buckhorn Bar in Cushing last August when he reported that someone had broken into his house from which guns, jewelry, money and silver dollar coins were stolen, the affidavit said.
    When she talked to Cushing Police Officer Chuck Claxton last summer, Lansford denied any knowledge in the burglary that occurred shortly before her employer reported an embezzlement at the Buckhorn Bar — in which she was named as a potential suspect last summer, the affidavit said.
    Four months later in December, a man reported to Cushing police that “while he was packing Lansford’s clothing that he heard something hit the ground and saw three limited edition ten-dollar game tokens from the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas fall from a piece of her clothing,” the affidavit alleged.
    Lansford’s former employer at the Cushing bar said three ten-dollar game tokens were missing from his jewelry box, the affidavit alleged. He said that he got them in 2002, the affidavit said.
    In October, Lansford was charged in Noble County with armed robbery, firing a gun into the home of a Red Rock couple, running a roadblock north of Stillwater, drunken driving at U.S. 177 and Cimarron Turnpike, eluding an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper, firing shots in the air as troopers tried to talk to her, transporting a loaded gun and driving under suspension.
    She is a twice-convicted felon who in 1995 received a six-year sentence in Kern County, California, and a one-year and four-month sentence for receiving stolen property in Kern County, California, authorities said.
    In Oklahoma, Lansford has pleaded innocent to an eight-count charge in Noble County where she is scheduled to have a pre-trial hearing on Feb. 19 — with her jury trial tentatively schedued for March 29, authorities said.
    Her son, Robert Chad Lansford-Barela, 21, of Cushing, remained in the maximum security section of the Payne County Jail on Monday pending his transportation to state prison to serve three life without parole sentences that he was given in October for killing three Cushing residents last February by shooting them in the head.
    He cannot be taken to the state prison system until the state Department of Corrections requests it, Payne County Sheriff’s Investigator Larry Kitchel told KUSH Monday.
    His mother could be given as much as a life prison term plus 33 years if convicted of all of her charges in Noble County, court records show. She could receive an additional five-year prison term if convicted of knowingly concealing stolen property from her employer in Cushing in Payne County, records show.
