Oklahoma County prosecutors on Thursday charged a second man in the 2009 killing of four people, including a star of a TV reality show about prostitution.
Denny Edward Phillips, 34, was charged with six counts of first-degree murder because two victims were pregnant. He is in federal prison.
The deaths attracted national attention in 2009 because one of the pregnant victims, Brooke Phillips, 22, was a prostitute featured on the television show, “Cathouse.” The HBO reality program is about a legal brothel, the Moonlite BunnyRanch, near Carson City, Nev.
Also killed were Casey Mark Barrientos, 32, of Oklahoma City, Jennifer Lynn Ermey, 25, of Edmond, and pregnant Milagros “Millie” Barrera, 22, of Mustang.
Their bodies were set on fire after they were shot the morning of Nov. 9, 2009, in a rented house in south Oklahoma City.
Prosecutors allege Phillips orchestrated the shooting and was present at the house, either inside or outside, at the time of the attack.
The shooter, David Tyner, is serving six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. He pleaded guilty to his role in May.
