Jury Selection to Begin in McClain County Deaths
PURCELL, Okla. (AP) -- Jury selection is set to begin in the murder trial for a man accused in the deaths of a McClain County woman and her two children.
Shaun Michael Bosse (BOSS'-ee) faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2010 deaths of 25-year-old Katrina Griffin, 8-year-old Christian Griffin and 6-year-old Chasity Hammer.
Jury selection begins Monday in Purcell.
Griffin and her children were found dead inside their burned-out mobile home. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled that Katrina Griffin died from multiple sharp force trauma, while Christian died from multiple stab wounds. The report says Chasity died from smoke inhalation and burns after the family's mobile home in Dibble was set on fire.
Bosse is also charged with arson. He has pleaded not guilty.

AARP creates relief fund for Okla. tornado victims
May 23, 2013 07:36 GMT
EDMOND, Okla. (AP) -- AARP Oklahoma and the AARP Foundation have created a relief fund for the victims of Oklahoma's devastating tornadoes.
The new fund, called the AARP Foundation Oklahoma Tornado Relief Fund, will match contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000. That means that as much as $500,000 in aid will be on hand once the match is met through contributions.
The foundation will give funds to organizations providing relief and recovery support to disaster victims. Losses are expected to top $1 billion.
The senior advocacy group says many older Oklahomans, including AARP members, are struggling to recover from the tornado's impact. Contributions for victims can be made through the AARP Foundation's website, where 100 percent of tax-deductible donations will be used to help the victims.
