Jury recommends life in Oklahoma slaying of Keokuk couple

One of the Oklahoma men accused of murdering a former Keokuk couple could now face the death penalty.

A Tulsa, Okla. jury believes the man convicted in the murder of a former Keokuk couple should spend the rest of his life in prison.

Darren Price was found guilty earlier this week of first-degree murder and other charges.

He and Jerard Davis were charged with the execution-style murders of Carissa Horton, 19, and Ethan Nichols, 21.

The couple was found dead in a Tulsa park on Sept. 19, 2012.

According to KQCW in Tulsa, a jury recommended a sentence of life without parole for Darren Price after six hours of deliberation Thursday.
