Oklahoma City police say robbery suspect linked to four murders

The Associated Press - September 28, 2018 11:54 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police in Oklahoma City say a robbery suspect in custody for almost a year has been linked to four 2017 homicides in the Oklahoma City area.

Court records indicate that 27-year-old Mario Normore is charged with ten counts of robbery with a firearm involving several businesses and two banks.

Oklahoma City police Officer Megan Morgan said Friday prosecutors have accepted police recommendations that Normore also be charged with four counts of murder. Formal charges in the homicide cases haven’t been filed and his attorney says he doesn’t know if he will be charged with murder.

Morgan says Normore has been in custody since last October on the robbery charges. She says investigators later tied Normore to the deaths of a man and woman in July 2017 and the deaths of two other people in October.

This story has been corrected to show Normore is being held on ten robbery counts, not nine.
