Two women are dead in separate homicide cases, Oklahoma City police reported Monday.
Evelyn Goodall, 94, of Oklahoma City, was found about 9 a.m. Friday with assault injuries at 3526 NW 20, Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.
Police went to Goodall's home to make a welfare check and found her lying on the floor inside her front door, covered in blood, according to the police report.
Goodall told police she had been finishing her breakfast in the kitchen about 6:30 a.m. with her back door slightly ajar when a man rushed in, threw her to the floor and began beating her, according to the report.
Goodall was taken to Integris Baptist Medical Center where she died Sunday night.
This is the fourth time since 2010 that Goodall's house has been broken into. In the previous incidents, two were burglaries or attempted burglaries and one was an assault, Wardlow said.
Anyone with information about Friday's assault can call police at 297-1132.
In a separate case, Quanisha Lashay Dupree, 28, of Oklahoma City, was fatally shot late Friday at 1120 N Anita Ave. She was taken to OU Medical Center where she died. She suffered multiple gunshot wounds, police said.
Police said Kenneth Kimbrough, 23, fled the scene on foot but was arrested a few hours later near SW 89 and Drexel Avenue.
Kimbrough was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on a homicide complaint, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight reported.
A neighbor called police and said Dupree's children ran to her house and told her, “Daddy shot Mommy with a gun,” according to a search warrant affidavit filed Monday in Oklahoma County District Court.
The neighbor said she heard what she thought were fireworks just before the children began beating on her door.
