TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Records show that a Tulsa police officer accused of killing his daughter’s boyfriend retired from the force last month and collected a $162,000 pension in a lump-sum payment.

The Tulsa World reported yesterday that while state law prevents officers convicted of felonies from collecting monthly payments, Shannon Kepler would be able to keep the lump-sum payment.
