Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Murdered in OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Police say Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Mark Costello has been stabbed to death at a fast-food restaurant and his adult son has been taken into custody.
Oklahoma City Police Department Captain Paco Balderrama said in a statement late Sunday night that officers responded to a report of a stabbing at a Braum's restaurant and found Costello, who had been stabbed multiple times in the head and neck area. Costello was taken to a hospital, where he died of his injuries.
Balderrama says the suspect, identified as 26-year-old Christian Costello, the commissioner's son, was taken into custody in the restaurant parking lot.
Balderrama says the younger Costello was arrested on a first-degree murder complaint.
He says Christian Costello is in police custody. Balderrama said he did not know whether Costello has an attorney.
