    Kevin Sweat charged with 1ST DEGREE MURDER Taylor & Skyla

    Kevin Sweat, 25, Henrietta OK, charged.

    Max Cook, Okfuskee Co. D.A.: "We were always hopeful we would come to this point....at times we had our doubts....on this day I have also filed a bill of particulars in this case [filed in death penalty cases] in both cases involving Mr Sweat."

    Nothing before the death of [Sweat's girlfriend] Ashley Taylor to indicate Sweat was directly involved in Weleeka Girls's deaths.

    "Still working on establishing motive."

    Information "began to evolve in late August."

    "At this time we're not looking for any further suspects."

    "We believe the gun we're looking for was his gun in his possession at the time of the murders."

    25-year-old Oklahoma man charged with first-degree murder in deaths of 2 Weleetka girls





    By Associated Press, Updated: Friday, December 9, 3:49 PM


    OKEMAH, Okla. — A 25-year-old man was charged Friday with first-degree murder in the fatal shootings of two young girls found on a dirt road near Weleetka in 2008.
    Thirteen-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker were killed after going for a walk on an unpaved road less than a half-mile from Placker’s home. They had been headed for Bad Creek Bridge, where they planned to wade through waist-high weeds to the river bank to collect shells and pebbles.

    From the links-

    First Degree Murder charges were filed Friday afternoon by District Attorney Max Cook against 25-year-old Kevin Sweat for the June 2008 murders of 13-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker. The friends were shot multiple times as they played close to Placker’s home near Weleetka.

    FINALLY! Closure for these families - one step closer. My thoughts are with them today. I cannot even begin to imagine what they are feeling right now.

    This case has not been one I have really participated in here at ws, aside from lurking, but these little girls' murders have always nagged at me. In one of my few posts on this case I recall posting how strongly I felt that this was a local and someone known to them.

    I am so happy these charges have finally been leveled.

    The charges came 1,279 days after Taylor and Skyla were murdered.

    Might be a good time to link the case archive. It will be updated regularly as news comes in.

    Finally!
    These girls are going to get justice.

    according to the affidavit.

    http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/artic...0_TheOkl504769

    Florence said authorities had no information linking Sweat to the Weleetka slayings before Taylor's death.

    "It was during the course of that investigation that information helped us understand and realize that Mr. Sweat may have been involved in the murders of Taylor Placker and Skyla Whitaker," Florence said.

    "These promising leads followed a tedious and methodical pace knowing full well that Mr. Sweat was behind bars and being held without bond.

    OSBI agents interviewed Sweat on Sept. 13 while he was being held in Taylor's slaying, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Friday with the charges.

    He told agents that he was driving on a rural Okfuskee County road in June 2008 when he pulled over, got out of his car and was approached by "two monsters," according to the affidavit.

    Sweat said he "panicked," grabbed a .40-caliber handgun from between the seats of his car and "shot the monsters." He then grabbed a .22-caliber gun from the glove box and "shot the monsters" again before getting back in his car and driving away, agents said.

    Joe Mosher, Taylor's great-uncle, said he thought Sweat had been a suspect in the girls' slayings for some time. He said Taylor's family is relieved and pleased that prosecutors will seek the death penalty.

    "Even if he gets the death penalty he will sit in jail for 20 or 30 years unless the other inmates get a hold of him," Mosher said. "I hope they do."

    Mosher said Sweat had worked with one of Taylor's aunts.

    "We don't know why he killed the girls," Mosher said. "We are hoping to find out now."

    Wayne Woodyard, Sweat's attorney, had no comment, other than to say his client would probably be arraigned next week and he hadn't had time to review the new charges.

    More to come on this story. Look for the complete story in tomorrow's Tulsa World
