DIBBLE — An Oklahoma City man was arrested Friday night on three counts of first-degree murder in connection with a fire earlier in the day at a trailer home near Dibble. A young mother and her two children were found dead inside.
Shaun Michael Bosse, 27, was arrested about 8:45 p.m. at his apartment in Oklahoma City and was booked into the McClain County jail, said Jessica Brown, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman.
Three bodies were found shortly after crews were called about 9 a.m. Friday to a trailer home at 15734 212th St., one block north of State Highway 39 and about two blocks east of Aspen Road.
The OSBI and McClain County sheriff’s office investigated the deaths in the home east of Dibble. Authorities did not immediately release the names of those found inside the structure, but two relatives near the site identified them as Katrina Griffin, 25, and her children: Christian Griffin, 8, and Chasity Hammer, 6.
Brown said Bosse had been interviewed several times by investigators during the day on Friday.
She said the bodies found inside the trailer exhibited signs of trauma that led investigators to believe foul play was involved.
“It was obvious to us it was a homicide at that point in time,” Brown said.
McClain County Undersheriff Bill Shobe said volunteer firefighters put out the fire and found the three bodies inside the residence.
