LAWTON — Four teenagers have been charged in the killings of one of the teen's father and brother.
Thorsten Rushing, 18, Ethan Thompson, 19, Cody Davis, 19, and Timothy Delahoy, 18, are accused of carrying out or aiding in the Jan. 20 shooting deaths of Rushing's father, Uwe Rushing, 50, and brother, Stefan Rushing, 14,a local newspaper reported Friday.
Thorsten Rushing and Thompson each were charged with one count of first-degree murder in the Lawton slayings. Delahoy and Davis each were charged with two counts of being an accessory to the killings.
Another suspect, a 17-year-old, was expected to be charged in the case Friday.
According to the police affidavit filed in the case, Davis and Delahoy tried to help Thorsten Rushing commit the crime at least three days before the double-homicide. After the first attempt failed, Thompson and the 17-year-old suspect reportedly assisted with the homicides Jan. 20.
Prosecutors say Thorsten Rushing shot his father in the chest and head before shooting his little brother in the head.
"Stefan was not 'bleeding out fast enough' so Thorsten covered Stefan's nose and mouth and smothered him until he was dead," the affidavit says.
Thompson and Thorsten Rusting then reportedly fired shots into a wall in an effort to make it look like someone had broken into the home.
Thompson, Davis and the 17-year-old later went to police with a 9mm gun that they said was used to kill Thorsten Rusting's dad and brother.
Police and prosecutors have not given a motive. Thompson is charged with murder because he allegedly acted to further the conspiracy.
The Comanche County District Attorney's Office declined to comment. Thompson had an attorney present for the initial appearance, while Thorsten Rusting asked for a public defender. Davis' mother, April, said she was "in shock" at learning the oldest of her five sons was accused in the crime. She said Davis was always a good and kind young man who enjoyed playing cards and staying in with friends.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for April 9. ___
