In Nov. 2018, Rick Swan, 60, was in his travel trailer parked in the barn when firefighters found his body.

Kevin Foster, the victim’s stepson, was arrested and charged with first degree murder and arson.

According the the affidavits, the victim’s body was severely burned just inside the travel trailer.

The Rogers County Sheriff said Swan and Foster had been in a feud for a while.

One part of the dispute involved the cemetery plot where Swan's late wife is buried and where Swan was to be buried when he died.
