TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors in Tulsa have filed first-degree murder charges against two men in separate murder cases.

Prosecutors charged 40-year-old Roscoe Joseph Dabney with murder in the Feb. 6 shooting death of 36-year-old Demetrius Arledge at a Tulsa liquor store.

A motive for that shooting has not been released.

Prosecutors also charged 39-year-old David Earl Donaldson with murder in last Wednesday's shooting death of his 33-year-old girlfriend - Jeanna Coffman.

Police say it appears Donaldson and Coffman were arguing before the shooting and that Coffman had told a friend Donaldson was trying to take a trailer that held most of her belongings.
