A Tulsa man accused in the death of an elderly woman last year now faces a new charge.
Tyrone Woodfork was charged on Thursday with one count of bringing contraband into the jail. Court records show he was found with a shank.
Woodfork has been in jail since his arrest last year. Authorities believe he broke into the home of Bob and Nancy Strait, beat them and robbed them.
Nancy Strait died the next day and Bob Strait died a few weeks later. Prosecutors announced last week they would not ask for the death penalty.
Woodfork's trial is scheduled to begin in October.
