MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -

The document says Mason told police she and Johnny stole some money from his dad and didn’t want to get in trouble, so they took his truck to Midwest City and checked into a hotel.

She said a short time later Jeffrey and Pritchard knocked on the door and were let in by her boyfriend.

According to the document, Mason said Johnny and his father got into an argument, then a fight. That’s when, according to Mason, Johnny got his gun out of the nightstand and shot both men.

She said she and Johnny then left in the truck and threw their cell phone out on the highway so they wouldn’t be traced. Then, she said, they left the truck and took a cab to Enid.

The document says Mason told police they were trying to get as far away as possible.

Police say Johnny refused to answer their questions.
