LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – A second burglary suspect is accused of murder in Logan County after a homeowner shot and killed one of the suspect’s alleged accomplices.
U.S. Marshals arrested 35-year-old Myklayn Lynne Day in an area west of Yukon on Wednesday and transported him to the Canadian County Detention Center, according to Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation officials.
Day is accused of first-degree murder, first-degree burglary and second-degree burglary.
His alleged crimes occurred during the early morning hours of Oct. 1.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at 2:30 a.m. that day from a homeowner who said he shot an intruder inside his residence on Backhaus Road near Guthrie.
