A man charged with first-degree murder for the slaying a former Denison High School football player who was gunned down last year in Cartwright has pleaded guilty to the crime.
Harold Ray Hass, 23, was sentenced to life in prison for the August 2011 shooting death of Dresean Jaron Jones, 19.
According to an affidavit by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Wesley Dylan Kelley, 19, Durant, had given Jones $500 for marijuana, and when Jones failed to provide it, Kelley went to Dustin Shawn Metcalf, 29, Calera, for help. They then met with Harold Ray Hass, 23, residency not listed, and Alora Dannin Hix, 22.
The affidavit states that Hix lured Jones to Cartwright by promising sexual favors. Investigators said Jones began to run away and he was shot in the back by Hass after Metcalf said to shoot him.
Hix had been charged with second-degree murder and during a recent jury trial, she was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter, and per the jury’s recommendation, she was sentenced to four years in prison.
Kelley pleaded guilty in April to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 35 years in prison with the last five years suspended.
