Mangum Man Charged In Wife's Death

MANGUM, Okla. (AP) - Greer County prosecutors have charged a 76-year-old Mangum man with first-degree Manslaughter in the June death of his wife.
 
An arrest warrant has been issued for Sammie Wayne Cates for causing the severe injuries that led to his wife Alice Cates' death.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Cates.

Prosecutors said that Cates injured his wife during a June 1st argument by repeatedly slamming her head against a wall. He then pushed her to the ground so hard she broke her hip.

Those injuries led to her death 21 days later. The affadavit states that he then forced her to leave their home.

An OSBI released a statement claiming the wife drove to Altus, to stay with her daughter. She later found out her hip was fractured and had hip replacement surgery on June 11th at OU Medical Center in Edmond. She died there on June 22.
