A man upset over a $250 debt fired a shot into a co-worker's head and then bragged about killing him, an accomplice testified Wednesday.
Nelson Troy Williams told an Oklahoma County District Court judge that Christian Cortuan Castro demonstrated how close he was to victim Darryl Linn Davis by pointing the gun “at the back of my head.”
Williams testified Castro stood over Davis, who was reaching into his car to turn on his headlights, then heard one shot and saw the defendant run to his car with “his hand wrapped in his shirt.”
“He throws his weapon on the passenger seat floorboard,” Williams said.
“I see his eyes, and then feel how hot the gun was at the tip,” Williams said.
Williams and Castro, both 22, were charged with first-degree murder in the Jan. 23 slaying of Davis, 22, who was shot once in the back of the head near SW 8 and Brookline.
Williams testified that Castro was upset about having to repay money Davis loaned him two nights earlier at a Valley Brook strip club.
Davis, according to Williams, wanted Castro to repay him the next day with interest.
“He wasn't very happy about it,” Williams said of Castro. “He said, ‘I got to get him out of the game.'”
