The two men wanted for murder after a woman was killed in an apparent fight over a car sale back in June are in custody.

Nicholas Davenport is charged with second-degree felony murder in the death of Amanda Hart. Jake Hignite, who is also charged in the murder, was taken into custody Thursday at Motel 6 at Town West. 

Back on June 24th, detectives say Hignite and Davenport were in a parking lot near Admiral and Mingo to discuss selling a car. Police say Hignite pulled a gun and demanded cash.

That's when Davenport told police he stepped on the gas, hitting Hart and crashing the car. Police say Hignite also shot Davenport twice in the leg.

Davenport was one of five people arrested on suspicion of manufacturing methamphetamine at a Tulsa motel in 2015.
