TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say a jail inmate has been charged in connection with the August stabbing death of the owner of a small restaurant on the city’s west side.

Sgt. Dave Walker says 32-year-old Alcon Sanders was jailed on unrelated charges when he was linked to the death of Ted’s Hamburger’s owner James Coulson. Coulson was found dead inside the business by employees arriving for work on Aug. 7.

Sanders is now charged with first-degree murder. Court records do not list an attorney for him.

Walker says investigators believe Sanders did not act alone in Coulson’s stabbing, but said there is not enough information to identify other suspects.
