OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KFOR) – Three people accused of helping Michael Vance during a statewide manhunt last October appeared in Oklahoma County court.

According to KFOR, April Harden, 38; Reginald Moore, 35; and Danny Roach, 35, are scheduled for a preliminary hearing for charges related to helping the fugitive.

Vance, who was later shot and killed in a shootout with police, was accused of a violent multi-county crime spree which started when Vance reportedly shot two police officers in Wellston before killing two family members and then shooting two more people in separate carjacking incidents. Vance also shot and wounded the Dewey County sheriff.

Roach, Harden, and Moore allegedly provided Vance with medical treatment and weapons.

Court documents said Vance allegedly went to Roach’s home after killing Ronald and Kay Wilkson. Roach stated that he knew about the crime spree and that Vance was on the lamb. The two even discussed the murders; Vance told him he killed Kay “after having been lied to.”

Harden, who lived with Roach, allegedly provided Vance an AK-47 Moore was storing with there.

Vance was shot and killed by Oklahoma State Patrol in Butler.
