Arrest made in Johnston Co. homicide

JOHNSTON COUNTY, OK - The Johnston County Sheriff's Office and OSBI have made an arrest in connection with the murder of 21-year-old Marcus Holt last month.

Tuesday afternoon, 21-year-old Tanner Jenkinson was taken into custody on complaints of accessory to murder.

The sheriff's office said they found out Jenkinson had taken Henry Jackson to Holt's residence, where authorities believe Holt was shot by Jackson on January 16th.

Johnston County Sheriff Jon Smith said this was the last piece of information they were looking for.

"We always knew and felt like that there was someone that had delivered him or been with him," said Smith. "And just putting pieces together and recent information that we were able to obtain led us to the culmination of events."

Authorities said Jenkinson knew that a crime was going to be committed.

Jackson was later killed in a shootout with Ardmore police.

Jenkinson's initial appearance in Johnston County court is scheduled for later this week.
