LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - A man facing several charges in Stephens County for burglary and assaulting detention officers is now facing a charge in Comanche County for murder.

Isaiah Carpenter has been charged with second-degree murder in Comanche County.

According to police, he is accused of attacking his great grandmother, Mary Carpenter, at a home on SE Ellsworth in Lawton last week, just hours before his arrest in Stephens County for attempting to break in to a home.

Police were able to identify Isaiah through video footage from Mary’s house, where he was caught wearing the same clothes there as the burglary.

Mary Carpenter later died from her injuries.

Lawton Police said the motive in the attack right now is not known.

They added that once Carpenter is done with his legal proceedings in Stephens County, he’ll be brought to Comanche County to face the second-degree murder charge.
