New information about a double homicide at a Del City motel that left two women dead, including a Tulsan.

Wednesday, prosecutors filed murder and robbery charges against the suspect, Donald Grant. A police affidavit says Grant reportedly killed Brenda McElyea of Tulsa and Felicia Smith to get money to bond his girlfriend out of jail. A housekeeper told police on the morning of the murders she noticed a man sitting in the lobby filling out a job application. That man was later identified as Grant based on fingerprints.

Authorities arrested Grant in New York City. He waived extradition on Monday, and is expected to be back in Oklahoma late next week.
