MIDWEST CITY — The two suspects in the Midwest City murder of an off-duty Sapulpa police officer and another man were arrested around 10 a.m. Monday.

Enid police arrested the pair. Midwest City police said they were arrested without incident at a local convenience store in northwest Enid after a citizen called police to report two people sleeping outside the business.

Police said Jonathan Grafton and Daphne Mason were wanted in connection with the murder of Grafton’s father Jeffery, and Sapulpa police Lt. Trey Pritchard.

" We want to thank all the law enforcement agencies involved in this manhunt, especially the United States Marshal Service and Enid Police Department. There was an heighten concerned that both murder suspects would be violent when faced with arrest — fortunately no one was injured and we are closer to bringing this tragic case to a conclusion,” Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said in a news release.
