Slaying of three happened in same house as unsolved 2018 homicide

The Associated Press - January 8, 2019 11:43 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma City police say a home where three people were found slain is the same home where a woman was found dead less than a year ago in a still unsolved homicide.
Sgt. Gary Knight says police conducting a welfare check about 12:30 a.m. Monday found the bodies of 15-year-old Roshawna Stevens, 35-year-old Carnesha Patrice Powell and 44-year-old Elijah Malachi Mothershed.
A suspected cause of the deaths has not been released and no arrests have been made.
Knight says the northeast Oklahoma City home is in a “rough neighborhood” and is the same house where 64-year-old Wanda Skanes was found dead on Feb. 7, 2018, in a slaying that remains unsolved.
Knight said there is no indication the two slayings are related.
