OKLAHOMA CITY

Bail denied

in 4 slayings

Bail was denied Monday for an Oklahoma City man accused of slaying four of his relatives. An initial court appearance date will be set later for Daniel Livingston Green after prosecutors formally file charges. Green, 40, is in the Oklahoma County jail on four murder complaints. Handcuffed with his arms placed behind his back, Green appeared by video from the jail before Oklahoma County Special Judge Russell Hall. Green was arrested last week after police discovered four of his relatives dead from apparent gunshot wounds, according to court papers. The victims were identified as Green's mother, Sallie Green, 57; his sister, Rebecca Cizek, 34; and Cizek's children, Katherine Cizek, 16, and Amario Dominguez III, an infant. All were killed inside the family's home, 4601 SE 79. Green told police he had to get away from his family members because they were stopping him from being with his one true love, the affidavit states.

Man accused

in girl's rape

An Oklahoma City man was arrested on a rape complaint after a family reported a 12-year-old girl had been assaulted. Decarlos Marquis Latham, 18, was in the Oklahoma County jail Monday with bail set at $50,000, jail officials said. Police were called about 5:30 a.m. Sunday to an apartment complex in the 3600 block of Lottie Avenue. Latham and the girl told police they were watching a movie with the girl's cousin in a bedroom, according to the police report. The girl told police after her cousin fell asleep Latham began touching her inappropriately, kissing her, then had sex with her, according to the report. When officers asked Latham if anything sexual happened, he did not answer and looked down at his feet, according to the report.

Guardian faces counts

A woman responsible for the well-being of a 14-year-old is accused of beating the boy numerous times with a hammer, a mallet and an extension cord. Elizabeth Marie Alberty, 59, was charged Monday in Oklahoma County District Court with three counts of child abuse. One count goes back to September 2010 when the boy was 10; the other two charges allege the beatings occurred July 14. An Oklahoma City police officer wrote in a probable cause affidavit that the boy was in a hospital July 15 with numerous injuries to his feet, ankles, legs, knees, shoulders, arms and head. The boy told the officer Alberty was his guardian and that she had legally adopted him.
