NORMAN — A second person has been charged with first-degree murder in the Sept. 14 shooting death of a Norman man during what police think was a burglary gone awry.
The U.S. Marshal's Service arrested Latricia DeeAnn Vaughn, 20, in Oklahoma City last week on a murder complaint. Vaughn was charged in Cleveland County District Court this week with acting in concert with her brother, Myron Burris, in the death of Nicholas Werner Williams, 20.
Burris, 17, and Vaughn are accused of breaking into Williams' apartment in the 2100 block of W Brooks Street in an attempt to burglarize it. According to a court affidavit, the two surprised Williams, who was home in bed.
A struggle ensued, and Williams was shot in the leg, the affidavit states. He called 911 from his apartment and made statements to police that led them to arrest Burris. Williams later died of blood loss in the emergency room at Norman Regional Hospital.
Vaughn was connected to the crime through a police interview with her girlfriend, an Oklahoma City woman who said she drove Burris and Vaughn away from the crime scene after the shooting occurred, the affidavit states.
Vaughn's girlfriend told police that Vaughn told her she shot Williams in the leg because they were struggling and he wouldn't let go of her, according to the affidavit.
Information on Vaughn's cellphone indicated she was trying to sell property that was stolen from Williams' apartment, the affidavit states.
