Isaiah Tryon will face a murder charge in connection with the stabbing death of his child’s mother, a slaying witnessed by dozens of people at Oklahoma City’s busy Metro Transit hub.
Tia Bloomer, 19, was stabbed multiple times before a security guard pulled the suspect off her and put him in handcuffs about 10:30 a.m. March 16, police said.
Tryon, 22, was the father of Bloomer’s 2-year-old child and had a history of violence toward her, records show.
He was serving a deferred sentence after pleading guilty in November to abusing Bloomer and also was accused of firing a gun at her in 2010 while she was holding their baby.
Oklahoma County Prosecutor David Prater approved the charge this week in district court.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Tryon confessed to the murder multiple times during an interview with investigators.
Other charges for recent homicides approved by the prosecutor’s office include:
Darron Darrell Fair, 23
Fair will face a murder charge for the Jan. 17 slaying of Donte Deshawn McCarther, 21, who was found dead near a breezeway at an apartment complex in the 1400 block of N Council Road in Oklahoma City. McCarther died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Police believe Fair shot McCarther with a rifle during a robbery, according to court documents.
Fair surrendered to authorities in Mississippi and was brought to the Oklahoma County jail earlier this month, Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.
Fair was the fifth person arrested in connection with McCarther’s death.
Other people arrested include: Larry Clayborn, 29; Alfonzo Dwight Hamilton, 36; Lawrence W. Bartlett, 27; and Brandon Dawson, 20.
Rickey Dean Gold, 26
Investigators believe four people were involved in the March 11 homicide of Russell Hable, 41, of Yukon, who was found shot in the chest at the Super 40 Motel, 301 S Council Road, in Oklahoma City, according to court documents. Rickey Gold Jr., 26, faces a murder charge in the death.
A manager found Hable’s body at 1:30 p.m. and called police. Police arrested Joyce Seco, 34, March 12 in the 5900 block of S May Avenue, Wardlow said. Court documents state Seco told investigators Gold and a woman named Sherry Campbell entered Hable’s room intending to commit a robbery. Rickey Gold shot Hable, court documents state Seco told police.
A third woman, Terri Camp, drove a vehicle, Seco said.
