WALTERS, Okla. – Authorities say a Cotton County woman has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of her husband at their home near Walters.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown says Iona Allen called the sheriff’s office about 2:20 p.m. Monday and said she shot her 74-year-old husband, Harry Williams, outside the residence.

The 66-year-old Allen was arrested on a murder complaint after deputies found Williams’ body in the back yard with a shotgun wound to the face and shoulder.

Brown says the sheriff’s department had responded to the home in the past for domestic arguments, but the incidents weren’t physical. More on KSWO

South Tulsa Teen Shot To Death

Posted on April 5, 2009. Filed under: dispute - domestic, Oklahoma |

Tulsa, Oklahoma – Police are investigating the murder of a South Tulsa teen.  They say another teenager shot and killed 18-year-old Kaitlyn Finnegan Saturday night.

“It’s not supposed to happen that your child dies before you do,” Jeanne Finnegan said between sobs. She was their oldest and only daughter.  Jeanne and Jim are trying to accept that she’s gone. “It’s hard to see your daughter in the hospital and you can’t even touch her,” Jim Finnegan said. His daughter died at the hospital before he could say goodbye.

“I don’t understand how it could happen, why it happened. It doesn’t make sense- kids with guns,” Jim said.
Tulsa police told Fox 23 the Bishop Kelly High School student was shot at a friend’s house.  No one called police after the shooting; instead a friend drove her to the hospital.

Officers arrested 17-year-old Theo Fleming on a first-degree murder complaint. They say he shot Kaitlyn.

Her parents say the two were beginning to date.

“He knew what he was doing. He had a gun. He knew what a gun would do. To point it at her and pull the trigger, just to be screwing around. He still should go to jail for murder,” Jeanne said.
