Bond increase approved for person of interest in quadruple homicide

TULSA - A judge has approved a motion by the Tulsa County District Attorney's Office to increase the bond for a person of interest in last week's quadruple homicide.

On Tuesday, 32-year-old Freddie Hayes was linked to the homicide through court documents, which state Hayes is believed "at a minimum" to be a witness in the Fairmont Terrace murders.

Hayes was already in custody on unrelated charges.  He was arrested Friday for carrying a concealed weapon, trespassing and possession of a controlled and dangerous substance.

Judge Dana Kuehn approved the motion Wednesday, raising Hayes' bond from $11,000 to $250,000.

On Jan. 7, Tulsa police responded to the apartment complex near 61st and Peoria to find four women shot to death.  A toddler was found at the apartment unharmed.

The mother of two of the victims, twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, told 2NEWS Hayes was dating her daughter Rebeika.

The other two victims were Misty Nunley and Julie Jackson.

Hayes' sister, Brittany Hayes, spoke to 2NEWS via telephone Tuesday, saying she didn't believe her brother could kill someone.

A source tells 2NEWS several others in Tulsa police custody are "persons of interest."
