HENRYETTA, Okla - There are new developments in the death of a 13-year old boy who was shot and killed at the home of a Henryetta police officer in December.
The case is now in the hands the Muskogee County District Attorney's Office.
Larry Moore's office says he is reviewing the case for possible charges. But no further details are being released.
Landon Jewell's uncle is relieved to hear that progress is being made. Kevin Sweat tells 2NEWS, "Something... anything. It's bad enough that a lot of things go unsolved. I just don't want this to be similar scenario."
On December 10th, police were called to the home of a veteran Henyretta Police Officer.
While few details about what happened inside the home are being released, investigators know Landon and two friends were alone in the house, when one of the boys got his hands on a loaded gun.
Sweat says, "Another boy and the boy who shot him, those two were apparently arguing over a girl. From what I have been told, the kid just basically picked up a gun and my nephew ended up shot in the head."
Days later the Medical Examiner ruled Landon Jewell's death a homicide.
Months later, no arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.
A spokesperson for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation tells 2NEWS, the case was handed over the Muskogee County District Attorney's Office on February 18th.
Moore was appointed as a special prosecutor because the Okmulgee County DA recused his office from the investigation.
