Muskogee police have arrested at least three people in a shooting that left a Fort Gibson teen dead.
Ryan Satterfield, 17, was found dead at a residence at 1505 E. Okmulgee Ave., on Wednesday evening after police responded to a shooting call at 9:14 p.m., said Muskogee Police Lt. Bobby Lee.
Police made three arrests but were looking for more subjects in what Lee referred to as a “robbery gone bad.” Police arrested Martin Miller, 18, and Deandre Clark, 18, on complaints of first-degree murder and first-degree robbery. ......
“They came in and hit one boy in the head with a baseball bat and knocked him out,” Satterfield said. “They took the rest of the boys into the kitchen, made them kneel down and took their phones and money.”......
One of the boys there said he grabbed Ryan’s hand after he’d been shot, and Ryan told him, ‘Tell my mom and dad and brother and sister I love them, because I’m going to die tonight.’

Today, a new Hamilton County jury will determine if a man already sentenced to die should go back to death row. Rayshawn Johnson was convicted of murdering his neighbor Shannon Marks more than a decade ago but because of a problem during his sentencing phase all those years ago, he'll be re-sentenced by a new jury.
He slipped out of the apartment — he lived with his grandmother — and went into the Markses’ bathroom on Nov. 12, 1997, where Shanon Marks was getting ready to go to work at Procter & Gamble. It was the couple’s third wedding anniversary.
Johnson beat the 29-year-old with the bat 13 times, the last three in the head, probably so she couldn’t identify her attacker. Her husband found her body 13 hours later in a pool of her blood.In addition to the fatal blows that fractured her skull, she also suffered a broken jaw and a broken left arm.

Two California women savagely attacked in their home
VICTORVILLE - The capital murder trial of Sherhaun K. Brown got under way here last week, 41⁄2 years after the Moreno Valley man was charged with the stabbing death of a Yucca Valley woman.
Brown is accused of breaking into a house in the 57000 block of Canterbury in the Yucca Mesa area around 6:30 a.m. May 7, 2007, and stabbing 54-year-old Kristy Vert to death. He also is charged with raping and slashing the throat of Vert's daughter-in-law, who lived at the home with her two young children......
After Brown got the money, he raped and sodomized Vert’s daughter-in-law,
The 4-year-old came out and witnessed the rape, the victim said.
After raping her, Brown slit her throat.
Vert was found dead in another room with stab wounds.
The surviving victim told the jury that her oldest son, now 9, has become “close-minded” and doesn’t speak much since the killing.
“He’s a completely different child, and as a parent, I don’t know what to do,” she said. “I feel like I’m a bad person.”
She said she had lived in constant fear for two years after the vicious attack, feeling as though someone was coming after her or looking at her.
“It was like a living hell,” she said.
She was in the hospital for about a month, trying to recover from a vocal cord injury, “not knowing if I was ever gonna talk again or tell my kids I love them,” she said.
When a male nurse came in to change her intravenous lines, she screamed, pulled out her tubes and ran away from her room because he reminded her of Brown, she testified.
“Now I look back, I feel bad about that. But at the time, I was scared,” she said
She’s since moved to a new house surrounded by a fence. She put four or five locks on most doors and a security screen on every door. She installed a security system and got a pit bull.
“I have a gun now,” she said.
