CRIME BRIEFS

OKLAHOMA CITY

Robbery suspects accused again

Two men charged with a liquor store robbery that ended in an August shoot-out are accused of a second armed robbery two days earlier in southwest Oklahoma City. Tucson Delayne Redd, 32, and Broderick James Scott Ransom, 17, are accused of robbing the Circle K, 2100 W Interstate 240 Service Road, on Aug. 24. Redd pointed a pistol at the clerk and bound his hands with zip ties while Ransom filled a backpack with cash, cigarettes and cigars, according to the probable cause affidavit filed in Oklahoma County District Court. Ransom reportedly confessed to the crime, and a gun matching the description was seized from Redd, the affidavit states.

Escapee charged in murders

A man who escaped the Comanche County jail nearly 15 years ago while awaiting trial on two murder charges has received two life sentences after pleading guilty in the case. David Lee Kemp pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of first-degree murder and one felony count of escape from custody. Kemp was one of nine inmates who escaped the Comanche County jail by using a large grilling fork to overcome jailers. The other eight escapees were captured within days, but Kemp remained on the run until this year when he turned himself in. Kemp was charged in the 1998 shooting deaths of his ex-wife, Christina Cremer, and her boyfriend, Robert Miller. Kemp had been set to go to trial later this month.
