Baker guilty in deputy shooting, Cattleman’s robbery


OKLAHOMA CITY – A man who was accused of shooting an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s deputy during a robbery last year has been found guilty of the crime.

A jury spent several hours considering the case against Christopher Baker.

They ultimately found him guilty of shooting with intent to kill and robbery with a firearm.

Last year, Christopher Baker shot Maj. John Waldenville, who was working an extra job as security for Cattleman’s Steakhouse.

Maj. Waldenville is still recovering from his injuries.

The jury recommended a life sentence in prison for one charge and a 30 year sentence for the other.

The second suspect in the crime, Keonta Prince, is still waiting to go to trial.
