About $10,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from one of four people found shot to death last week inside a burning home in Oklahoma City, police said Thursday.

Casey Barrientos, 32, of Oklahoma City, was wearing a large diamond-and-white-gold necklace, along with matching earrings and a bracelet, police Sgt. Gary Knight said. The jewelry has not been recovered, he said.

Barrientos was discovered shot to death at the home, along with three women, including 22-year-old Brooke Phillips, a prostitute from Moore featured on the HBO reality series "Cathouse."

David Allen Tyner, 28, of Locust Grove was arrested on six felony murder complaints earlier this week. The additional two murder complaints were filed because Phillips and another victim, 22-year-old Milagrous Barrera of Mustang, both were pregnant, Knight said.

Tyner has met with an attorney from the Oklahoma County Public Defender's office, but his lawyer declined to comment because he has not been formally charged, said Bob Ravitz, the county's chief public defender.

Police have not determined a motive for the shooting, but Knight said investigators believe more than one person was responsible.

A search warrant affidavit filed by police this week shows investigators recovered drug paraphernalia, marijuana, knives, ammunition and bullet casings from two different handguns after a search of the home.

One of the female victims also had cuts to her stomach, face and neck, the affidavit said.
