DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) -- A 15-year-old Duncan boy is facing a murder complaint for allegedly stabbing his adoptive father to death Monday night, police said.

Justin Long is accused of killing Hoyt Long, 42, who was found dead in his living room of multiple stab wounds with a large knife in his lap, said Duncan police.

Department Investigator George Williams said the boy's mother called police after she reported hearing strange noises coming from
the home's living room.

Police said she found her husband sitting on the living room sofa, making gasping noises.

She said the boy was sitting nearby and ran from the house when she called 911, Williams said.

An officer used a dog to track Justin Long down.

Justin Long is in the Stephens County Jail. District Attorney Gene Christian said he will be charged with first-degree murder in district court.
