OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a search for evidence in the 2011 slaying and dismemberment of a 19-year-old woman has turned up "several items of interest."

The OSBI said in a news release Wednesday that the search of two northwest Oklahoma City yards has ended and the items will be sent to the agency's laboratory for testing and analysis.

The OSBI didn't immediately reveal what was found. Spokeswoman Jessica Brown has said only that the search was for undisclosed evidence in the slaying of Carina Saunders and that ground penetrating radar was being used.

Parts of Saunders' body were found Oct. 13, 2011, in a duffel bag behind a grocery store in the northwest Oklahoma City suburb of Bethany.

Brown said recent tips led investigators to the property.

    We had a great turnout at Texoma Idol this weekend. Kourtney Smith ended up taking home the title. She was named the first ever Texoma Idol received a trophy and a silver ticket to guarantee her an audition with an American Idol producer. Smith was one of about 50 people who showed up to audition. We had phenomenal judges: Jeri Anderson, Lauren Nelson, and Greg Hoffner. They had quite the job because there were some amazing singers that auditioned.
