Two charged with murder in shooting death

The Associated Press - July 23, 2019 2:46 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – First-degree murder charges have been filed against two people in the shooting death of the manager of an Oklahoma medical marijuana dispensary.

Oklahoma County court records indicate charges were filed on Monday against 38-year-old George Stewart Watson and 37-year-old Lyndsi Mae Mayabb. The records do not list an attorney for either defendant.

Authorities say they are charged in the death of 24-year-old Andrew Sawyer English, the manager of a medical marijuana dispensary in Edmond, whose body was discovered by police in his home on June 27 with three bullet wounds in his back.

Investigators tracked the suspects to St. Augustine, Florida, earlier this month, where Mayabb told detectives that Watson allegedly shot English after learning she had a relationship with him.

Edmond Police spokeswoman Jennifer Wagnon said Tuesday that the suspects have waived extradition.
