Two arrested in death of Norman man

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Norman police say two people have been arrested on murder complaints in the death of a man whose body was found in his burned home.

Capt. Tom Easley said Saturday that 24-year-old Christopher Cody King of Del City and 19-year-old Mary Courtney Cheyenne York of Del City were arrested on complaints of first-degree murder, robbery, larceny and concealing stolen property in connection with the death of 51-year-old Patrick Burton of Norman.

Easley did not know if the two had yet retained attorneys.

Burton's body was found Wednesday inside his home after firefighters extinguished a fire at the home. The state medical examiner's office has determined that Burton was shot to death.

Easley says two other people who were sought in the case have been found and were not arrested.
