Police say there could be more arrests in connection with the death of a west Tulsa man Wednesday. 

Chris Wilson, 29, is in the Tulsa County Jail on a first-degree murder complaint.  Investigators say Wilson was arrested Wednesday afternoon for the death of Terry McCorkle.

McCorkle's family found the 66-year-old dead in a bedroom of his home near Edison and 49th West Avenue Wednesday morning.  Investigators said it appears someone had ransacked the home.

McCorkle's car was located about a mile away and police stopped it and took a man and woman inside the car into custody for questioning.

One neighbor tells us he rarely saw McCorkle, but he seemed friendly.

"That man seems very nice, he was always on his front porch waving at people.  It's disastrous, I don't really have anything else to say about it," said Allen Couch.  

Detectives say they don't have a motive for the killing.
