Man, teen arrested for first-degree murder of OKC man

OKLAHOMA CITY – Two men are behind bars for first-degree murder after police connected them to an Oklahoma City man’s death.

For about a month a 15-year-old boy and another man have been hiding out from police.

Authorities finally tracked them down at a south Oklahoma City hotel on Tuesday.

The two are accused of murdering 45-year-old Kevin Gentry inside his home.

Police say Gentry’s sister showed up at her brother’s apartment off south Shields Boulevard, and when nobody answered the door, she kicked it in and found Gentry’s body.

For weeks whoever killed Gentry was on the run until Tuesday when police got a break in the case.

They were tipped off to two suspects at Best Value Inn at 4800 south I-35 and arrested 15-year-old Larry Stephen Richter and 26-year-old Stephen Cody Williams.

Gentry lived in the home for about a year, and his family says they love and miss him.

Now police are trying to figure out what lead to his murder.

Both Richter and Williams are in the Oklahoma County Jail facing first degree murder charges.
