“Words cannot explain the anguish we feel,” wrote a Barrera family member. “The loss of Millie and her unborn child is beyond words.”
Tyner did not address the court and chose to stand with his back to Ermey's mother and cousin as they read their statement.
“We hope that every day of your life you relive the torture of what you did Nov. 9,” said the cousin, Brad Clark.
Family members did not speak to the media after Tyner was led away in handcuffs and a gray-striped prison jumpsuit.
Barrientos dealt marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine from the rented house in south Oklahoma City, according to testimony at Tyner's preliminary hearing in January 2011. He also ran prostitution on the side, witnesses said.
The house became a party place where the men carried guns, women often walked around naked, $100,000 was out on a coffee table and bricks of marijuana were stacked in the kitchen, according to testimony.
One witness testified she overheard Tyner and her then-boyfriend making plans to kill Barrientos and leave no witnesses. She said Tyner was irritated he wasn't being paid enough for his bodyguard work. Tyner lived in an apartment in Salina, in far northeastern Oklahoma, at the time of the killings.
A former girlfriend testified that Tyner was at that apartment when she went to bed about 11 p.m. Nov. 8, 2009, but he was gone the next morning. Firefighters went to the burning drug house and discovered the bodies after getting a 911 call at 5:35 a.m., police reported.
The lone survivor of the shooting said Tyner came to the house after 3 a.m. looking for Barrientos, who wasn't there at the time.
The witness, Jose Fernando Fierro, 32, said he heard shots fired 15 to 20 minutes after Barrientos arrived. Fierro fled the house. He said he was in a bedroom and did not see the shooting but that Tyner chased him.
