Daughter Runs Down, Kills Mother, 60, In Driveway

Daughter Runs Down, Kills Mother, 60, In Driveway

DALLAS – A neighbor who saw Cecilia Marie Ogle back a car over her mother, dragging her into a Far East Dallas street late Thursday night, shouted at the 21-year-old woman to stop, according to police documents.

But Ogle ignored his pleas and accelerated the teal Toyota Camry over 60-year-old Sheila Ann Ogle, dragging her under the vehicle again toward the driveway of her home in the 2200 block of Ballycastle Drive.

“It was a terrible sound,” neighbor Sam Morgan said.

Then Cecilia Ogle, who according to police records has a history of drug and drunken driving convictions, got out of the car and dragged her mortally wounded mother by the hair, saying, “Mom, what are you doing? Mom!”

Cecilia Ogle was being held at the Dallas County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail Friday night. She faces charges of murder, and aggravated assault on a public servant for biting and spitting blood at a Dallas police officer hours after the slaying.

Morgan lives across the street from the Ogles’ duplex near Gus Thomasson and Ferguson roads. He said in an interview Friday that he called police after hearing the two arguing about the mother’s car.

He said the daughter was in an “altered state” and didn’t appear to understand what had happened.

Responding paramedics and Dallas police officers found Sheila Ogle with cuts on her legs and a deeply purpled face, police documents said. She was taken to Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake, where she was pronounced dead at 12:35 a.m.

“They didn’t even turn their sirens on,” Morgan said. “She was dead.”

Dallas officers who searched the Ogle home found Cecilia Ogle sitting behind a closed bedroom closet door, police documents said. She was taken to Jack Evans Police Headquarters, where she became combative and punched at an officer in an interview room about 5 a.m. Friday, the documents said.

Ogle bit another officer on the arm as he tried to put a seat belt on her. The officer struck Ogle and she spit blood in his face, police said, so the officer then sprayed her with pepper spray.

Ogle’s Dallas criminal record includes a 2009 drunken driving arrest in which she was accused of “biting, scratching and kicking” Dallas police officers. Those officers also had to spray her with pepper spray to keep her from breaking the squad car windows, police documents said.

In that case, Ogle had initially given police a false name.

“I lied to you because I’m crazy and I don’t even know who I am anymore,” she said.

Those who know the Ogles said the daughter had a history of causing trouble, and the mother often called police on her. She often took the car without permission, they said.

“They argued every day, screaming, yelling and carrying on,” neighbor Larry Melton said.

Jonnie England worked with Sheila Ogle at the Operation Kindness animal shelter in Carrollton for years. England said she was a talented artist and warm person who cared for stray and special needs cats.

“I just know that she tried to help her daughter and be supportive in any and every way that she could, and once her daughter was no longer a minor there was very little that she could do,” England said.

“I just hate that the last thing that Sheila was aware of was what was happening and her daughter who she loved so much was responsible,” she said.

    The records from Dallas County Juvenile Services are sealed. However she has a history of drugs and little remorse. She claims she remembers nothing................

    We can only hope that she gets the death penalty so that she would pose no future harm to the world. I can see an insanity plea in the future though.

    I have no idea who Robocop33 thinks Cecilia is. She has never been married. So, the alleged Military benefits are not available to her. Her mother was married at least three times with off and on relationships since the last her (the mother's) last divorce. CiCi has had problems since she was about eight years old. Her mother tried to do the best she could for her. Her records with the CPS and Juvenile Department should elaborate on her problems. Her mental state is no excuse for what she did. It was an unforgivable act of rage enhanced no doubt by alcohol and drugs. But as for the statement by Robocop33...the only military person in CiCi's life was her Grandfather, a decorated 101 paratrooper from WWII.
    Both CiCi and Shelia chose to distance themselves from the Grandfather's side of the family. So the newspaper story was our news of this terrible tragedy.
    Cici will pay for her act.
    Rest in peace Shelia.

    Prayers for the mother, may she rest in peace, a horrible way to go. This worthless offspring will have plenty of time to dry out while in jail.

    She picked the wrong State to commit a Murder in. Texas has an express lane to the execution chamber. If she gets the DP she'll be in another world before she turns 35.

    My prayers are for the Mother, may she rest in peace, I also think the daughter was lucky I wasn't there, as a civilian, I think it would have been an excellent idea if I had been allowed to have oh, 2 minutes in a windowless soundproof room guarded by a burly police officer.... I would then be the one jailed.

    Get off the wealth envy kick. This woman was an US Military Officers wife and could get the best care in the world if she had asked. Used to be the military took care of their own just like LE used to do. Seems now that more and more are only looking out for themselves. Lesson learned, keep in touch with your friends and help and stick by them when they need it so things like this don't happen as often as they do.

    A bail amount? After that? I would have knotted her on the head with the butt of my weapon. Maybe it would knock some sense into her. She is obviously disturbed and a danger to everyone and needs to be kept in jail. If she gets out, whose next?
