Oklahoma Appeals Court Upholds Teen's Life Sentence
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Oklahoma appeals court has upheld the life prison sentence of a 19-year-old man convicted of first-degree murder for the February 2010 shooting death of a 26-year-old man. The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals handed down the decision Monday for Larondon Hembry Jr. A McIntosh County jury convicted Hembry in April 2011 and recommended a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole. Hembry was convicted of killing Christopher Shade while they were parked in Shade's vehicle on the outskirts of Eufaula. Shade was shot twice in the head and his body was found in his sport utility vehicle near an abandoned convenience store in Muskogee. Police have said Hembry claimed the shooting was self-defense in a dispute over stereo equipment and money.

Pace slows in testing after Tulsa health scare
May 24, 2013 12:51 GMT
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Additional tests reveal no new cases of hepatitis or the virus that causes AIDS among patients of a Tulsa oral surgeon accused of running dirty clinics.
The pace of people seeking testing has slowed. About 3,900 patients of Dr. W. Scott Harrington have gone to state clinics for testing. In March, health departments urged testing for 7,000 patients. Just 54 patients sought tests within the past week.
Inspectors said they found unsanitary conditions inside Harrington's clinics at Tulsa and Owasso.
So far, 70 patients have tested positive for hepatitis C, five for hepatitis B and three for HIV, but there is no indication the diseases spread at the clinics. Health experts say the spread of disease in dental clinics is extremely rare.
Harrington is cooperating with the investigation.
