OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — A man has been arrested after two decapitated bodies were found inside a home daycare in Oklahoma City on Tuesday. Officers were called to check on the welfare of a couple. When officers arrived, they found Quinton Dashawn Laster, 20, outside of the home, according to KFOR.
Inside the home, officers found the bodies of 78-year-old James Earl Reed and 59-year-old Sharon Reed. According to officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department, the victims had been shot and decapitated.
