Man arrested in 2011 shooting of boy

Ponca City Now - December 17, 2014 9:57 am

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) – The Muskogee County district attorney says a man has been arrested in the 2011 shooting death of a 2-year-old boy.

The Tulsa World reports ( http://bit.ly/1BXmsLL ) authorities arrested Ezzard Charles Onebear, 20, on Tuesday. It’s unclear if he’s been charged in the death of Ja’Cion Logan-Ragsdale.

District Attorney Larry Moore says the FBI has been assisting local authorities with the case. He says recently obtained information linked the man to the slaying but he didn’t give details about the evidence.

Muskogee police say the boy’s maternal grandmother opened the door to an armed man and his gun fired after a struggle ensued.

Another Muskogee man had been charged with felony murder in the case but was acquitted by a jury in March 2013.
