SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma authorities have arrested two Texas teenagers wanted in the fatal shooting of a 66-year-old woman.

Sapulpa police say the 17-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy surrendered without incident Thursday night at a motel. Authorities say they tracked the pair by using the victim’s credit card.

The Lamar County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office says the victim was found Thursday at a home near Paris, Texas. They say her cards and car had been stolen. The district attorney has issued warrants for the teens, who will be extradited back to Texas.

The Associated Press doesn’t typically name juveniles accused of crimes.
