A man charged in connection with the slaying of a Blanchard man in January has been arrested, becoming the seventh person arrested in the case.

John Worcester, 39, was arrested by U.S. marshals and Oklahoma City police shortly after noon Tuesday in the 1500 block of Douglass Avenue.

Worcester was charged April 15 with murder in connection with the death of Shawn Masters, whose body was found on fire in rural Logan County.

In all, eight people are charged in the case. Brandy Hanson, 35, and Angel Munoz, 24, are charged in Oklahoma County District Court with murder and desecrating a body. Worcester, Jessie Dalton, 37; Tyson Lott, 21; and Quentin Goodwin, 30, are charged with murder. Also charged with desecrating a body are Johnny Snow, 49, and Twila Wise, 36.

Six of those arrested were being held Tuesday in the Oklahoma County jail. Lott was being held in the Canadian County jail.

Dalton is in the state penitentiary in McAlester, where he is serving two life sentences for unrelated murders.

According to court documents, Munoz and Hanson were upset with Masters because they were arrested driving a stolen car they borrowed from him.

Munoz’s boyfriend, Dalton, told her he would ask a friend to “take care it,” documents show.

Goodwin and Lott are accused of beating Masters with a baseball bat and wooden board before Munoz stabbed and strangled him.

Munoz, Hanson, Worcester, Snow and Wise then took his body to rural Logan County and set it on fire, court documents state.
