MIDWEST CITY — Police arrested six people, all Oklahoma City residents, in connection with a weekend homicide.
Arrested were: Ashley Rene Craig, 17; Jarvis Jones, 19; DeMarkus Long, 19; Justin Woody, 19; Aaron Gaines, 19; and Ravan Craig, 19, all on complaints of murder, conspiracy to commit a felony and robbery, Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said.
Police were called about 1:20 a.m. Saturday to 10002 Caton Place in reference to a woman being shot. Shirley Butler, 39, was shot after she answered a late-night knock at the front door, her husband, Kalvin Murray, told police. Murray's teenage son also was in the home, he said.
Butler was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Officers were told two men and a woman fled the house on foot. Police found bullet casings, a clip from a weapon and a women's shoe in the front yard.
Investigators found a large quantity of marijuana inside the house, Clabes said. Police learned Murray and Butler were robbed in August but did not report it because drugs were involved, he said.
