ADA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities have charged eight people in connection with the death of a man whose body was found burning in Ada in 2015.
The Ada News reports that authorities believe 34-year-old Dennis Johnson Jr. was killed in Oklahoma City, then his body brought to Ada and set on fire. Prosecutors this month charged eight people from the Oklahoma City area, including two juveniles, in the case.
Four of them were charged with first-degree murder while the others were charged with accessory after the fact to first-degree murder. All eight were charged with desecration of a corpse as well.
An affidavit says authorities discovered blood stains in one of the suspect’s vehicles and the DNA matched the victim’s.
