Tulsa police seek to question man in killings

By  | 

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police investigating the shooting deaths of four women in a Tulsa apartment want to question a man arrested in Kansas on an outstanding domestic assault warrant.

Tulsa police spokeswoman Jill Roberson says the 33-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night during a traffic stop in Independence, Kan.

Roberson said Wednesday that the man is not a suspect in the Monday slayings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley, and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

She said police are trying to arrange his return to Tulsa for questioning. Roberson did not know if homicide detectives have spoken with him.

She says the man is known to frequent the area and that his name surfaced as part of the investigation into the killings.
