OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City man has been charged with murder in the shooting and decapitation of his grandmother and her husband.
Prosecutors on Tuesday charged 20-year-old Quinton Deshawn Laster with first-degree murder in the Feb. 9 deaths of 59-year-old Sharon Reed and 78-year-old James Earl Reed in the home the three shared.
Laster pleaded not guilty at an initial court appearance Feb. 11. He is being held without bond and court records do not list an attorney for him.
Prosecutors say officers found the couple dead inside the home after Laster had asked the neighbor to call police.
The state medical examiner's office said Tuesday that Sharon Reed died from multiple gunshot wounds and beheading and James Reed died due to "multiple trauma." No other details were released.
