Judge names heirs in estate of man killed by Tulsa police

The Associated Press - December 7, 2016 11:15 am

Terence Crutcher

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa County District Court judge has ruled there was no common-law marriage between a man who was fatally shot by a Tulsa police officer and the mother of three of his children.
Monday’s ruling says Frenchel Johnson’s relationship with Terence Crutcher did not meet the requirements of state law for common-law marriage and that she is not the heir to his estate.
Judge Kurt Glassco instead ruled that Crutcher’s heirs are his three children with Johnson and a child from a previous relationship.
At stake is more than $150,000 in a GoFundMe account established for Crutcher’s estate after he was shot and killed Sept. 16 by Tulsa police officer Betty Jo Shelby.
Shelby is charged with first-degree manslaughter in the shooting and has pleaded not guilty.
