Emotions ran high in the Brown County Courthouse as the victim’s father addressed Scolman for the crime he committed against his son.

The judge made it clear that he believed mental illness played no part in Scolman murdering Nabors. He referred to the attack as a “thoughtful conviction.” Scolman is ineligible for parole.
