Mom of Tulsa Quadruple Slaying Victim: Slain Daughter Was Trying to Reclaim Life
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- The mother of one of four women fatally shot inside a Tulsa apartment says her daughter was staying with a friend as she tried to get her life back together.
Misty Nunley was found dead Monday, along with 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.
No arrests have been made, and investigators have released no other details -- including possible suspects or how the women knew each other.
But Nunley's mother, Cheryl Nunley, said Tuesday her 33-year-old daughter was staying with Powell on and off for the past week. She spoke with her Monday and doesn't know why anyone would want to hurt her.
Tulsa police spokesman Leland Ashley says detectives have no clear suspects or motive. He urged anyone with information to come forward.

Judge orders Okla. pastor to trial on murder count
May 25, 2013 19:32 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A judge says the pastor of an Oklahoma City church must stand trial in the shooting death of his son-in-law.
Fifty-three-year old Michael Elder is charged in the death of 27-year-old Gary Davidson last February. Davidson was married to Elder's daughter.
The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/16Wg62Z ) that Judge Ray C. Elliott on Friday ordered Elder to stand trial after Davidson's wife and girlfriend each told different stories. April Davidson said she feared for her life while fighting with Davidson in the front seat of a pickup truck. Judith Chism said Davidson was trying to exit the truck from a rear seat when he was shot.
Defense lawyers have argued Davidson fired the gun in self-defense.
Elder is senior pastor at The Cross Baptist Church. He was being held without bail.
