TULSA (AP) — Police say one of two men charged in the beating death of a hogtied Oklahoma man is the father of the victim’s girlfriend.
Forty-six-year-old Dearld Peal and 40-year-old Tracy Price are charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping in the death of 18-year-old Anthony Pietrzak, whose body was found early Thursday about 3 miles (5 kilometers) from his and his girlfriend’s home in north Tulsa.
An anonymous caller told police Tuesday that a man known as Anthony had been beaten to death at his home.
Officer Jeanne MacKenzie says Peal is the father of Pietrzak’s girlfriend and that she told detectives she asked the men to beat up Pietrzak because he had been beating her.
MacKenzie says investigators are looking into whether a third man took part in the attack and that more charges are possible.
