Smith sentenced to life for Altus murder

ALTUS, OK (TNN) - A man convicted of murdering another man during a drug deal in Altus has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The judge in the case agreed with the jury’s suggestion for the sentence. Marielle Smith was convicted last month of killing Jarred Holmes in August 2017.

Police say Smith was planning on selling drugs to Holmes before he killed him and dumped his body in Frederick.

Two others have also been charged in the case.
