An arrest has been made in Nevada of another of the defendants accused in a federal indictment of involvement in an illegal Oklahoma City-based gambling business.

Gary John Gibb, 68, of Reno, Nev., is accused of aiding and abetting an illegal gambling business, aiding and abetting the transmission of wagering information and involvement in a money laundering conspiracy.

Gibb was arrested Friday. He remained in custody Saturday in Nevada.

FBI agents Friday in Oklahoma City arrested Teddy Mitchell, 57, the main defendant in the gambling case. Agents also arrested two of his sons, Dryden Mitchell, 32, and Nick Mitchell, 22, and a longtime friend, David Loveland. They are being held in the Grady County jail.

Teddy Mitchell is accused of operating an illegal gambling business that made millions of dollars. His attorney has told the media repeatedly that Teddy Mitchell was not involved in illegal activities.

The indictment will be unsealed Monday in federal court in Oklahoma City. Federal prosecutors and the FBI have declined to comment until Monday.

Paperwork filed in federal court in Nevada after Gibbs' arrest indicates there are 10 defendants in all in the gambling case. The indictment has 81 counts, according to the court records.

Accusations about Teddy Mitchell and illegal gambling became widely known after his wife, Julie Mitchell, 34, was brutally beaten to death in their Oklahoma City home on Nov. 2, 2010.

The homicide has attracted intense public interest but remains unsolved.
