ANTLERS, Okla. – An Oklahoma man was arrested on Thursday for the murder of his nephew.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents arrested 69-year-old Henry Cole at his home in Antlers for the murder of Gene Cole.

Gene Cole died after being shot in the neck with a shotgun.

Officials say Henry Cole called 911 to say he had discovered his nephew’s body on his property.

OSBI agents served a search warrant on Henry Cole’s home and found two shotguns inside.
