Stabbing results in city’s 15th homicide of the year

A Thursday morning stabbing incident has resulted in Lawton’s 15th confirmed homicide of the year and the fifth within the week.

Police were called around 4:30 a.m. to the 1600 block of Northwest Black Mesa on the report of a 58-year-old woman suffering a stab wound, according to Sgt. Tim Jenkins, Lawton Police information officer.

“The investigation is now being investigated as a homicide,” Jenkins said. “Unknown at this time of what caused the incident.”

The unidentified woman’s death is the 15th confirmed through foul play in the city this year.

Police continue to investigate a pair of incidents from last weekend.

Officers were called around 2 p.m. Saturday to the 100 block of Southeast Trenton Road, just south of East Gore Boulevard, on the report of a shooting. They arrived to find a woman and her two children dead along with the suspect.

Jenkins identified the victims as Krystle Rose Marie Easley, 34; Emma Lena Mary Cliburn, 6; and Kristo James Robert Cliburn, 5; all of Lawton. An unidentified adult male also was dead at the scene.
