Bond revoked for businessman accused of killing employee

The Associated Press - January 15, 2022 8:09 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma judge has revoked the bond of a local white businessman accused of killing a black man who worked for him. Judge Susan Worthington revoked the bond of 67-year-old Daniel Triplett on Friday after prosecutors say he visited a bank drive-thru and a local Waffle House in violation of his bond conditions.

Worthington allowed Triplett to be released on a $500,000 bond last month over the objection of prosecutors and the victim’s family.

An attorney for the victim’s family, Damario Solomon-Simmons, says he believes Triplett was granted bond because he is a prominent white businessman accused of killing a black man.

A message left Friday with the judge wasn’t immediately returned.
