Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris filed charges of first-degree murder and second-degree burglary against a teenaged boy accused of shooting and killing a woman in her parents' Jenks home just over a week before Christmas.
After 47-year old Mary Escue was found shot to death inside her parents' home on December 17th, Tulsa County deputies tracked down 14-year old Joshua Scott Mooney.
They found evidence apparently stolen from the home of Escue's parents during the burglary and murder in Sapulpa, a discovery which led them to the victim's car, and their suspect.
Mooney reportedly confessed to killing Escue after he broke into the home where she was staying with the intent of burglarizing it.
Mooney apparently told deputies that, when Escue came in the house, he hid in the kitchen with a rifle he'd found there.
He then confronted Escue, forced her into the computer room of the house where he shot her in the head.
Her parents found her dead when they got home later that evening.
Tulsa County deputies are still questioning a second suspect, a 13-year old boy, trying to determine if he was inside the house when Escue was killed.
