Self-defense is determined

Authorities say a Bryan County man was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed two men who entered his home last week. Bryan County Sheriff Ken Golden says no charges will be filed against Rodney Andrews in the deaths of Gary Robison, 66, and Bradley Rader, 35. Golden says Robison, Rader and a juvenile went to Andrews' home to confront him about an alleged assault. Deputies say Andrews shot Robison and Rader after they entered the home, but the juvenile wasn't injured. Although Andrews won't face charges in the fatal shootings, authorities did arrest him on complaints of manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful use of a police radio. He remains jailed on $100,000 bond.


Crank calls spur arrest

Tulsa County sheriff's deputies on Wednesday arrested a woman accused of making dozens of calls to Tulsa's Emergency Communications Center within eight hours in November. Regina K. Sanders, 46, was charged Feb. 15 with single misdemeanor counts of placing an obscene, threatening or harassing phone call and interference with an emergency call, court filings show. Prosecutors allege Sanders made 59 calls to 911 dispatchers on Nov. 16. On one occasion, she's accused of telling a dispatcher, “it's my job to harass you b------.” Sanders is being held at the Tulsa jail in lieu of $45,000 bail.
