Oklahoma court upholds man’s murder conviction, sentence
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld a man’s conviction for first-degree murder conviction and his life without parole sentence.
The court on Friday rejected the appeal of 71-year-old Charles Gustaves Johnson Jr. on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct.
Johnson was convicted of killing 45-year-old Duchone Whitworth in Tulsa in 2013.
Prosecutors say Whitworth was tied to a tree, then stabbed several times and his throat was cut in a dispute over money that Johnson said Whitworth owed him.
