MUSKOGEE, Okla. — The arrested suspect of the Muskogee murders is 25-year-old Jarron Deajon Pridgeon.

Pridgeon is accused of killing a total of six people, five of them are children, and the other is his younger 24-year-old brother. This is not the only crime on pridgeon’s record. Pridgeon’s criminal history includes three felony charges.

The first felony charge goes back to July of 2017. Pridgeon had one count of larceny of an automobile.

In February of 2019, Pridgeon has two more felony charges, one of them is assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. That weapon was a piece of cement, according to court documents.

In June of 2019, Pridgeon was charged with three misdemeanors:

obstructing and resisting an officer and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. The affidavit says Pridgeon was separating two people involved in domestic abuse. Then, it says, Pridgeon would not give his name to the responding police officer and ran away.

Pridgeon was later found with marijuana in his pocket. The affidavit closes by saying Pridgeon had two active felony warrants.

Currently, Muskogee Police say they do not have information on Pridgeon's past that can be released. They are focusing on the victims involved in Tuesday morning’s tragic murders.

Jarron Pridgeon had a video conference court hearing Tuesday afternoon and is scheduled for another Wednesday afternoon.
