Murder Charges Filed in 14-Year-old's Death
The Tulsa County District Attorney's office today formally filed First Degree Murder Charges against two men. David Ruple and Demonte Rushing are accused of firing shots into a pick-up truck late last month on the Gilcrease Expressway.
One of the shots struck and killed 14-year-old April Montano. She was riding in the pick-up with her father. They were returning to Tulsa from an outing at Keystone Lake. They were hauling All Terrain Vehicles in the bed of the pick-up. Police speculate Ruple and Rushing were trying to hi-jack the ATVs.
If found guilty, the pair could be sentenced to death.
