The Vernon County Sheriff's Office announced on Friday, Feb. 8, that deputies had arrested Bob Beisly II, 57, of Nevada, on one count of first degree murder in the July 15, 2009, shooting death of his wife Belinda.

Deputies arrested Beisly at his home at 805 N. Oak in Nevada. According to Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher, officers had "been watching him for a while because we knew this warrant was coming."

Mosher said deputies tried to find Beisly at home, but no one answered the door. They left the residence and watched it from a distance. Deputies watched Beisly's vehicle leave the house and stopped Beisly's girlfriend Dawn Woods. She confirmed that Beisly was in the house so officers returned. Since they knew he was in the house, they didn't need permission to enter and serve the felony warrant. Woods let them into the house. Beisly surrendered without incident and was placed under arrest. He is being held in the Vernon County Jail with no bond.

Belinda Beisly's family members were notified of the arrest and were at the Vernon County Jail on Friday afternoon. Her brother and loudest proponent Dave Irwin said, "it's been a long four years -- well, July it will be four years." Irwin said he had been waiting and hoping for that phone call for a long time. He said, I "hollered out," when they told me.

Irwin said everybody had an idea of who it might have been. "I had my suspicions." He also said, "I hope there is going to be some justice done now."

Irwin said not a day went by that he didn't think of his only sibling. He said she was "a cut up," she was a good person and she had a very big heart. Irwin and other family members broke into tears when he said that his sister would have been 51 years old next Friday.

Irwin said he hopes that everything will come out now that an arrest has been made. He said the ordeal has been tough on his mother. Irwin's wife, Cindy, said that it was going to be hard on Bea's son, True Benjamin Beisly. Especially when he learns "that his dad was behind it," she said. The Beislys had some questions about arraignment and bond and other legal matters, but Mosher told them those things are up to the court system.

Jeremy Maples is wanted on a charge of first degree murder in connection with the July 2009 shooting death of Belinda Beisly. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Maples should call the Vernon County Sheriff's Office at (417) 283-4400. Submitted photo
Mosher said there has also been a second first degree murder charge and warrant filed in the case. Law enforcement officials are looking for Jeremy Maples, 33, of Nevada. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Maples should contact the Vernon County Sheriff's Office at (417) 283-4400.

This is great to see and it's about time. Nevada law enforcement has been doing a great job lately, I like Mosher already.

Good for LE and good for Belinda and family. I second the "God bless".
