TULSA, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma couple has been convicted on multiple counts of child neglect after nurses said their twin babies were emaciated, and one had a maggot crawl out of a wound. Tulsa County court records show 25-year-old Kevin Fowler and 25-year-old Aislyn Miller were found guilty Friday. Jurors recommended they each receive 130 years in prison. Formal sentencing is scheduled for November. Their attorney didn't immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

MEAD, Okla. (AP) - Authorities in Bryan County say three people have been injured in an explosion at a residence in Bryan County. Officials say the structure exploded about 8:30 a.m. Monday in Mead, a southern Oklahoma community located about 142 miles (229 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City. Investigators say the house apparently exploded suddenly and suspect that a propane tank is likely to blame for the explosion.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - University of Oklahoma students are pushing to rename a Norman street honoring a former university professor who was also a grand dragon in the Ku Klux Klan. The Oklahoman reports that the university's student government association passed a resolution last month to support efforts to rename DeBarr Avenue, which honors Edwin DeBarr. Debarr was one of the school's first professors and he became a grand dragon while teaching there. He was forced out in 1923 because of his Klan involvement.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The fourth trial of a white former Oklahoma police officer charged with murder in the slaying of his daughter's black boyfriend is beginning its second week. More witnesses are scheduled to take the stand Monday in the trial of former Tulsa officer Shannon Kepler. Three previous trials have ended in hung juries. Kepler is accused in the 2014 death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake, who had just started dating Kepler's daughter.
