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.
