Hughes County man sentenced to no-parole life sentences

The Associated Press - October 5, 2019 8:24 am

HOLDENVILLE, Okla. (AP) – A Hughes County man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty earlier this year to two counts of first-degree murder for the 2018 shooting deaths of his father and grandmother in Holdenville.
Court records show that 31-year-old Rodney Lee Key was sentenced on Wednesday in Hughes County District Court after pleading guilty to the charges in June.
Key was arrested after the bodies of his father, 53-year-old Ronnie Key, and grandmother, 73-year-old Kathryn Fritz, were discovered in their home on May 26th, 2018.
Rodney Key was arrested later that day after authorities say he stole a truck and led authorities on a short chase before he crashed.
