Tulsa Man Arrested After Neighbor Finds Child Naked Outside
Sunday morning a neighbor in Tulsa called 911 after hearing a child crying outside for about 20 minutes. When the neighbor went to investigate he found a naked four year old child crying in the backyard. The neighbor knocked on the front door of the house and when no one answered he took the child back to his house and called 911. As Tulsa police officers approached the house they could hear screaming and crying coming from inside the home. Looking through a window they saw a small naked child locked inside a metal dog cage. The officers knocked on the door and when there was no answer they had to make force entry to render aid to the child. Officers were immediately hit with the overwhelming stench of feces. Upon freeing the naked 18 month old from the cage they saw that the child was covered with feces. After officers made their way through the house they found William Lewallen passed out in bed with a naked three year old child next to him. Lewallen told officers he did not know how the child got outside and how the other child got locked in the dog cage. He appeared to be impaired to the point he could not hear his child screaming for help outside in the frigid temperatures or the other child wailing to be let out of the cage. DHS was called to the scene and took custody of all children. William Lewallen was taken into custody and booked in David L. Moss for Child Neglect.

Judge OKs stay in hearing over 4 Tulsa deaths
May 24, 2013 23:06 GMT
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A judge has approved a five-day stay in the preliminary hearing of two brothers charged with killing four women in Tulsa.
The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/10u9DoC ) Presiding Judge William Kellough approved the temporary stay on Friday after denying a motion to recuse the judge assigned to the case of James and Cedric Poore.
The defense now has five days to appeal Kellough's denial before the case returns to the jurisdiction of Special Judge Stephen Clark in Tulsa County District Court.
However, the court's schedule won't allow a preliminary hearing to resume until July 15.
The Poores have pleaded not guilty to charges related to the January deaths of Misty Nunley, Julie Jackson, Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor. The four women were found tied up and shot in the head.
