A trial has been postponed for one of two men accused in the September 2011 murders of Carissa Horton, 18, and her boyfriend, Ethan Nichols, 21.
Darren Price and Jerard Davis each face two counts of first-degree murder. The victims were found dead in a Tulsa park on the morning of September 19, 2011. Both were shot in the head.
The newspaper account linked above calls Horton and Nichols the "alleged" victims.
Tulsa County prosecutors consented to a motion filed by Price's attorney for separate trials for the two defendants. "Both admit to having been present during the deaths of Horton and Nichols, but each accuses the other of firing the gun-thus prompting the motion for separate trials."
Price's trial was scheduled for March 4, but has been pushed back to September 9.
No date was given for Davis' trial.
The couple were jogging in Hicks Park when Price and Davis "allegedly" robbed them and then shot them, execution-style.
After killing Horton and Nichols, Price and Davis took the couple’s car and cell phones and texted Nichols' family the following day, pretending to be him in order to cover up their crime.
Price returned to the murder scene and told a TV reporter he feared for his family's safety. Police found the victim's car at a nearby apartment complex. They pursued the vehicle, which Price just happened to be driving. Price was taken into custody after crashing the car. Davis was arrested later.
