4-19-06 - A person of interest is in custody in the murders of a young couple in Pushmataha County. Carlos John Noah of Pickens turned himself into authorities Tuesday morning.

Noah is being held but has not been arrested in the deaths of Eric Samis and Amber Lawrence. Both were found dead at their Pickens home Monday afternoon by a neighbor.

Sheriff Jim Duncan says four children ranging from a newborn to about six years old were found at the home and are now in the custody of a grandparent. The sheriff also says it appears several people were in the house drinking beer early Monday.
