TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa County authorities say a dispute involving two associates of a white-supremacist prison gang led to the death of one man and the other being held on a murder complaint.

Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Casey Roebuck says her office is recommending first-degree murder charges against 31-year-old Cody Lee Fulmer. She says those recommended charges were upgraded after the victim, 23-year-old Jared Langworthy, died from his wounds.

Court records show formal charges have not yet been filed. She says both men were affiliated with the prison gang the United Aryan Brotherhood, and that Langworthy “got sideways” with the gang.
