Two people on the run after officer's death

MIDWEST CITY, Okla._Two accused killers are on the run this morning after an off-duty Oklahoma police lieutenant and his cousin were found dead in a Midwest City motel room.

Police say it started when Jonathan Grafton stole his dad's pick-up and drove it to the Traveler's Inn in Midwest City on Saturday morning. Jonathan's father Jeffrey Grafton and his cousin, off-duty Sapulpa Police Lieutenant Trey Pritchard drove to Midwest City to get the car back. They used the truck’s GPS to find it in the motel’s parking lot.

Police say Jeffrey went in to the room at first then trey, and that is when they both were killed. A motel clerk found the door to the motel room slightly open and saw the two lying on the floor before calling 911 on Saturday night.

Police do not say how the two were killed but believe Jonathan and his girlfriend Daphne Mason are responsible. Court documents show Jonathan was just released from jail on June 3 and has had a criminal history. On his Facebook he posted in March, “Murder is the only consistent answer to life's problems.”

Police found the stolen truck abandoned in Yukon. They are working to U.S. Marshals to try and find the suspects. Midwest City Police urges anyone with information to call 405-739-1306.
