TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police say the weapon and the sport utility vehicle believed to have been used by two officers suspected of shooting and killing their daughter's boyfriend have been found.

Officer Shannon Kepler is jailed on a first-degree murder complaint in the Tuesday shooting of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake and Kepler's wife — Gina Kepler — was arrested as an accessory to murder after the fact.

Sergeant Dave Walker told reporters Friday that the weapon believed to have been used was given to police by Shannon Kepler's attorney and the SUV the couple is believed to have been driving was found at a motel in east Tulsa.

Shannon Kepler remains jailed without bond while Gail Kepler was released on bail. Gail Kepler declined comment after being released.

Both are expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
