OKMULGEE COUNTY, Okla.  — A former Oklahoma City attorney and her boyfriend are charged in Okmulgee County with the triple murder of the boyfriend's ex-girlfriend and her parents.

During a news conference Thursday, District Attorney Carol Iski announced Barry Titus and Keegan Harroz are charged with three counts of premeditated murder and one count of burglary in the first degree.

In September 2019, deputies were called to a home on Lakeview Circle Road in Beggs, Okla. after a relative found the bodies of Jack Chandler, 65, and Kay Chandler, 69, and their daughter, Tiffany Eichor, 43.

"All three victims had been shot multiple times with at least two different caliber weapons," Iski said.

Officials said the shell casings from the shooting helped investigators build their case against Titus and Harroz.

"In further processing of the crime scene, it was discovered that the residence was equipped with the digital video surveillance system," Iski said.

Investigators said the video showed two people arrive, park in the road and then walk to the house.

Harroz's brother, who lives in Texas, turned in an AR-15 rifle to investigators and said he believed it could have been used in the murder, leading detectives back to the two suspects.

At the time of the murders, prosecutors said Titus, Eichor's ex-boyfriend, faced charges for assaulting Eichor, and she had a protective order against him.

Prosecutors said the lengthy investigation spanned numerous jurisdictions and two states. Officials said the COVID-19 pandemic delayed their efforts to bring charges forward.

"We have just opened our court system up really for contested matters within maybe the last month," Iski said.

Titus and Harroz are already sentenced to federal prison on weapons charges from another case. Titus was given a three-year sentence less than a week ago. In March, Harroz was sentenced to two years.
