Del City Pair Charged With Killing Norman Man
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Two Del City residents have been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Norman man.
Online court records show 24-year-old Christopher King and 19-year-old Mary Courtney York were charged Friday in Cleveland County District Court for the Feb. 13 death of 51-year-old Patrick Burton. Both are also charged with arson and King is charged with stealing Burton's pickup truck.
Both are being held without bond. Court records do not list an attorney for either.
Documents filed in the case allege that York knew the victim and arranged a meeting with him and that King shot Burton.
Prosecutors say they haven't decided whether to seek the death penalty.

Grand River Dam officials urge safe boating
May 20, 2013 07:12 GMT
LANGLEY, Okla. (AP) -- Officials with the Grand River Dam Authority are urging boaters to wear their life jackets and engage in other safe boating practices.
The agency is marking National Safe Boating Week by issuing safety reminders and noting that fatal consequences can result from careless practices on the water.
Statistics show that 70 percent of people who died in boating accidents in 2011 drowned. Among those victims, 84 percent were not wearing life jackets.
Officials say they could reduce the number of fatalities if boaters simply wear their floatation devices.
Last week, two University of Arkansas students died in a boating accident on Grand Lake.
