Two people have been charged with killing a man whose body was found in a Tulsa motel room.

27-year old Eldon Sexton and 16-year-old Candice Bartlow are accused of killing Lorell Battle Senior. They also face a count of first-degree arson.

Firefighters responding to a fire at a motel room earlier this month discovered Battle's body. Prosecutors say he was killed during a robbery, and then the fire was set to conceal the crime.
