Update: Oklahoma man turns self in after allegedly stabbing man in neck

SHAWNEE, Okla. - A man, who allegedly stabbed another man at a Shawnee house party on Friday night, turned himself in to police on Wednesday.

Shawnee police say 24-year-old Raymond Dewayne Harjo Jr., turned himself in shortly before 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

Det. Jason Crouch, with the Shawnee Police Department, alleges Harjo got into an argument with 32-year-old Ronald Boley at a house party, where Boley was staying with family.

Around 10:26 p.m. on Friday, investigators say the argument spilled out onto the street, in the 500 block of N. Louisa.

Authorities say that is when Harjo allegedly used a folding pocket knife to stab Boley one time in the neck.

He was rushed to OU Medical Center and was placed on life-support for nearly five days.

On Wednesday, the medical examiner's office called the Shawnee Police Department, saying Boley was taken off life-support and was an organ donor.

Harjo is now facing a charge of first-degree murder but has not been arrested for the crime.

Police do not believe the two men knew each other before the party, and did not disclose the nature of the argument or the motive of the stabbing.
