Murder suspect returns to Texas
A man accused in the fatal stabbings of his ex-girlfriend and her 8-year-old son has returned to Texas after his arrest in Oklahoma. Cedric Ricks is charged with murder in the May 1 deaths of Roxann Sanchez and Anthony Reyes Figueroa. He was arrested in Pauls Valley. Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes said Ricks was attacked by other inmates Thursday and suffered “visible injuries” to his face, but that they weren't serious. Court records show Ricks waived his extradition proceedings and was booked Friday in the Tarrant County, Texas, jail. In his mug shot, Ricks has a black eye that's swollen shut. The sheriff said the district attorney is reviewing the assault to determine whether any charges will be filed.
Warrant issued in shooting

An official at Mercy Hospital El Reno notified police a male gunshot victim had walked in. The 26-year-old man was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City for treatment, according to the news release. Anyone with information about Everhart or his whereabouts is asked to call police at 262-6941.

Bomb threat leads to arrest
A man was arrested following a bomb threat Wednesday morning that caused the evacuation of a school in northwest Oklahoma City. More than 2,000 people were evacuated shortly after 9 a.m. from all buildings at the Francis Tuttle Technology Center, 12777 N Rockwell Ave., said Mark Myers, Oklahoma County sheriff's spokesman. Sheriff's bomb technicians and dogs found nothing suspicious in any of the buildings. Deyonta Horton, 19, was arrested on a complaint of using a communication device to make a bomb threat. Myers said Horton admitted the bomb threat was not legitimate. Horton was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. His bail has not been set, jail officials said Wednesday afternoon.
